Before you pick a side, you have to draw a line.
Picket Line is the Xeric award-winning graphic novel by Breena Bard (published as Breena Wiederhoeft).
It tells the story of Beatrice, a Midwestern girl living in northern California, who gets caught in a battle between environmentalists and an unpopular land developer. In order to soothe her restless craving to belong, she must pick a side between her well-meaning boss Rex, and a growing mass of protestors fighting to save their treasured Redwoods. In this in-between state, Picket Line sets up camp, and its characters take their stand.
