Suddenly Last Summer

Degrassi Extra Credit #2

Get all of the drama Degrassi High School has to offer in the second book of the Extra Credit series as Emma gets her groove back only to realize things with Peter might not be as great as they once were, and Jimmy faces tough decisions after a hazing incident on the basketball team.

After a family trip to New York City and some helpful sessions of group therapy, Emma is convinced she has her groove back. But just as she returns to her old self, her relationship with Peter begins to suffer. She can’t figure out if Peter is helping her recover or just holding her back…

At the same time, Jimmy finds himself dealing with the fallout of a huge hazing incident while coaching at basketball camp. He is unable to determine if the initiation disaster was just a prank or if the kids intentionally crossed the line…and when the police get involved, Jimmy is faced with a tough decision.

This graphic novel takes fans beyond the hallways of the high school into the intense drama and tough decisions of their favorite characters in an expansion of the Teen Nick television series, Degrassi.
