Book Breakdown - Whistle Welcomes a New Kind of Gotham Defender

Willow Zimmerman wants to make a difference. She wants to make a difference in her neighborhood—Down River, a rundown region of Gotham City. She wants to make a difference for the stray dogs she works with at the animal shelter. And perhaps most important of all, she wants to make a difference in her home life—Willow and her mother are barely making ends meet with her mom’s cancer treatments and lack of health insurance.

Sadly, it seems like the odds are stacked against her until fate intervenes and leads her on a path where the difference seems to make itself. But it’s not quite clear to Willow whether the path is one of heroism…or villainy.

Get to know more about Willow and life in Down River in DC’s latest YA graphic novel, Whistle: A New Gotham City Hero , written by E. Lockhart and Manuel Preitano, and in our Book Breakdown below!
