Bay Ann, our star in this graphic novel, is the ultimate misfit. Bay Ann’s life is far from perfect, but she glows through it anyway with a lot of help from her friends.
May Bay Ann inspire you to shine as sparkly as she does. Not because she is disabled, but because she is exactly who she wants to be.
The daughter of Palestinian immigrants, as a child she dreamed of one day dancing on Broadway. As a teen, a bubble-bursting choreographer told her to “find another dream”, so she set her sights on becoming a soap star, undeterred by the fact that the odds were against her. While chasing fame, she found her voice in stand-up comedy, performing in multiple languages in sold-out shows all over the world.
