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.
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.

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.
