From the talented creator of bestselling comics Blue Monday and Scooter Girl, comes a funny, super-power graphic novel about the middle-school social hive, where only one girl can be the QUEEN BEE!
Haley is smart, funny, nice, and determined to be super-popular in her new middle-school. . . if she can control that problematic little secret power of hers. Enter another new seventh grader, Alexa. She's smart-alecky, definitely not nice, and she's got the power, too. Just like Haley, Alexa is psychokinetic. She can move things with her mind and does, never missing a chance to embarrass someone in the classroom, cafeteria, or gym--especially Haley.
When the two girls meet, there's literally a tornado.

The author of three best-selling series for young readers, Tony Abbott didn’t actually turn to writing full-time until 1994. He has always been involved with the world of writing, however, from his time at the University of Connecticut where he graduated with a degree in English Literature to his work with a variety of specialty bookstores, a university library, and an Internet book and magazine publisher. He shares a love of fantasy and adventure with his readers, with whom he maintains contact through his many school visits; Abbott has also taught writing workshops for all elementary grades.
Chynna Clugston is a multiple Harvey and Eisner Award nominee. She is a big fan of British Culture, including mod fashion, Britpop, and slang. If she didn’t think of California, where she was born and raised, as the coolest place in the world, she’d probably be living in London. Chynna’s artistic influences include Evan Dorkin, Dan Clowes and Rumiko Takahashi. She has been brainstorming book ideas since she was a teenager in high school.
Some of Chynna’s creations include the popular Blue Monday and Scooter Girl comic series. Chynna has also worked on Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics and Marvel Comics collections.
Chynna’s first title for Scholastic’s Graphix imprint is Queen Bee. Queen Bee is a funny but stinging look at the social hive of middle school girls, where only one queen bee can rule! Former geek Haley Madison spends the summer reinventing herself and trying to control those problematic little secret powers of hers. She soon meets another new girl, Alexa Harmon, and they soon find out they have much more in common than they ever thought.
Chynna Clugston is currently living in San Diego, California.
This bubbly, fun and smart new series is the second big release from Scholastic's Graphix imprint. Clugston, well-known for her edgy and stylish Blue Monday and Scooter Girl, has done it again in this stinging portrayal of popularity battles between beautiful middle-schoolers. Haley, the new girl, is determined to be popular and, in spite of the occasional gaffe resulting from her runaway psychokinetic powers, she succeeds. When an even newer girl shows up to challenge her new role as queen bee, it turns out that she possesses the same powers as Haley, and the battle begins. Energetic drawings and the girl-against-girl conflict recall the teen dramas of Archie, Betty and Veronica, while the climactic musical face-off carries off its Josie and the Pussycats homage with flair. Direct references to the best of the modern-day teen genre spice up the story, pointing out that Queen Bee is right at home alongside Heathers and Mean Girls. Clugston knows how mean girls can really be; her dialogue bristles with barbed rejoinders and she never glosses over the true nastiness of the girl fight. Everything works in this funny, charming and true story, right down to the closing mystery of why Alexa and Haley look so much alike. (Aug.)
