Book Description

Nov. 3 2010
Jimmy is a teenager in a crummy little town. He's got a lousy best friend Simon, a porn habit and an uncle whose miserable existence is the embodiment of life stalled in its tracks. He's also got a tender soul, a pure-hearted crush and the makings of a budding artist. A horrible youtube video of Jimmy dancing in his living room becomes viral, courtesy of Simon, and has made every sweet and hopeful thing about Jimmy seem utterly pathetic. Everyone from fellow classmates to the clerk at the corner store has seen the video, and Jimmy finds himself a celebrity in his town, just for the wrong reason. Unfortunately, the youtube antics do not stop there.

As in his in debut graphic novella Nicolas, Pascal Girard's second book again showcases his spare, deceptively simple style and his wonderfully expressive and pitch-perfect dialogue. Girard uses a drawn line full of tentative, exploratory and intuitive emotion, a line as sure of the treasure it carries as the book's quiet hero.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Read About an Awkward Teen April 28 2011
By AnnaEHS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Girard introduces us to Jimmy, who is the laughingstock of his school thanks to a friend who posted a video of `Disco Jimmy' dancing on YouTube. Other than becoming an internet meme, Jimmy's other problems are pretty standard for a boy his age - girls, homework, and his family. When his uncle comes to him with a video of what he believes to be Big Foot that he shot on his cell phone, Jimmy is once again brought into the internet spotlight, and the scrutiny of his classmates. Girard's drawing style brings out the emotion in his character's witty and subtle dialogue to create a well-rounded cast. Big Foot is a great study about how fast you can make or break friendships at the most awkward time of your life.
