Lighter Than My Shadow
Like most kids, Katie was a picky eater. She’d sit at the table in silent protest, hide uneaten toast in her bedroom, listen to parental threats that she’d have to eat it for breakfast. But in any life, a set of circumstances can collide, and normal behavior can soon shade into something sinister, something deadly.
Lighter Than My Shadow is a hand-drawn story of struggle and recovery, a trip into the black heart of a taboo illness, an exposure of those who are so weak that they prey on the weak, and an inspiration to anybody who believes in the human power to endure and to eventually find happiness.
Katie Green is an artist and illustrator living in the south west of England.Â She studied for a degree in biology before specialising in illustration and going on to create Lighter Than My Shadow, which is her first book.
She publishes a bi-monthly zine, The Green Bean, and shares snippets of her other projects on her website, www.katiegreen.co.uk
