About The Book

"I LOVE IT! Penny is a human disaster after my own heart!" — ND Stevenson, bestselling author of Nimona

If Penny Brighton didn't have bad luck, she'd have no luck at all. She lost her job and apartment on the same day, and with no other options, she started crashing at her best friend Helen’s storage unit. As a last resort, Penny snags a job at the laundromat, which is managed by Helen’s surly twelve-year-old brother. Things couldn’t get much worse, but that doesn’t keep the ever-buoyant Penny down. After all, she’s been sensing boyfriend potential with the cute receptionist at the community center who’s been sneaking her in so she can use the shower. Maybe things are looking up! But if Penny knows one thing for certain, it’s that luck has never been her strong suit. How long can this last?

Raves and Reviews

"I LOVE IT! Penny is a human disaster after my own heart!"

– ND Stevenson, bestselling author of Nimona

"Exceptionally entertaining comic."

– Publishers Weekly

"Quirky Penny, like characters in the romance novels she loves, is all heart, and she'll easily charm readers with her smoking, drinking, train-wreck style."

– BookList

"Penny is a poor soul who makes bad decisions, but she’s lovable throughout, and memorable even after the last page has been read. The graphic novel universe should consider itself lucky to have her."

– Foreword Reviews
