Based on author Lisa Wilde's experience teaching at John V. Lindsay Wildcat Academy, a charter high school for at-risk students in New York City, the story follows the lives of eight (fictionalized-composite) students as they work toward obtaining their diplomas. Originally serialized in zine format.
Yo, Miss - a graphic look at high school takes the reader inside John V. Lindsay Wildcat Academy, a second-chance high school in New York City, where Lisa Wilde has worked since 1997. A school where all the students are considered at risk, Wildcat offers these teens a ticket to the middle class - a high school diploma. With humor and humanity, Yo, Miss challenges preconceptions of who these kids are and what is needed to help them graduate.

A great graphic novel that even non-graphic novel readers like me can enjoy. The account of a teacher working in an inner-city school that feels very real.
