Forest Hills Bootleg Society Graphic Novel
When Brooke, Kelly, Maggie, and Melissa buy a bootleg anime DVD at a gas station, they get much more than they bargained for with Super Love XL, a risqu move featuring-among other things-a giant mecha who shoots lasers out of her chest. The four girls are horrified (and maybe a little fascinated). It's so unlike anything they've seen, would probably shock everyone else in their town, and definitely would take over their extremely conservative Christian school. That's when they have the idea to sell copies to local boys... for twenty dollars a pop. But as the market for mildly titillating anime DVDs grows, the girls realize they'll need new material. On top of figuring out how to replicate their first success, there's growing tension within the group. Will the four girls' shared history be strong enough to see them through this upheaval? Or will they learn that some things can only end in heartbreak?
