There's More to Me

This graphic novel follows the stories of five different youth as they each interact with the criminal justice system in separate cases.


There’s More To Me is a graphic novel that tells the stories of five different youth—Alex, Jamal, Jesse, Amy, and Ari. Each character has their own experience as a victim or witness in a criminal case.

To illustrate the common occurrences in criminal cases in which youth are victims or witnesses, the stories showcase the characters interacting with victim advocates, prosecutors, and counselors. Two of the stories also demonstrate the characters’ experiences of preparing for and testifying in court.

Each story also shows the characters learning and developing new skills to help manage their emotional responses to their situations.
