Webcomic description

Due to some restructuring of the Oakmoat School District, Rita has only six students in her new class;
​​​​​​​for them, blending into the background to get through high school isn't an option.

This slice-of-life drama, drawn traditionally and colored digitally, explores community and the human experience,
how it looks different and similar for each individual, and how our experiences clash and come together as we do.

I'm loving all the characters, but I think Tyler is my favorite so far. Kinda reminds me of my little brother.

Wow, that is genuinely so beautiful and sad. And a great last panel to lighten things up!

The first upload since the summer! I worked on this chapter at a slower pace because I've been busy with teaching and other things since the semester started, but alhamdulillah, I'm finally able to share it now! 😁

December 2021 Update: I'm putting this comic on the back burner for now to work on the second volume of "Remembrance at the Pond"!
