Based on real-life experiences working on a garbage truck, this comic book is filled with moments to make you laugh, as well as some that may just gross you out. There are also some well-researched facts about garbage, landfills, and the history of trash. This funny, in-your-face story might just make you think twice when taking the trash out. Twitter: Phantom Limbs by Paula Garner Otis and Dara have an unlikely friendship. Otis is reluctantly swimming his summer away, while Dara screams at him from the sidelines, trying to make him realize his Olympic potential - something Dara may have had herself once but is no longer a reality. Otis is just trying to survive these grueling practices and keep his head above the waves of grief that still crash over him three years after the death of his younger brother. But then Otisí former neighbor/friend/more-than-friend Meg comes back to town, and life gets more complicated. Will these three teens overcome their losses Ö or will they drown in their grief?
