Teen Boat! is the only graphic novel series to combine the angst of being a teen with the thrill of being a boat! From breaking out in barnacles to facing pirates and detention, all the challenges of adolescence are given a nautical twist. Being a teen and being a boat means dealing with a lot of pier pressure!
