CLICK by Kayla Miller To “click” or not to “clique.” These homophones, words that sound alike, but have different meanings, are explored in Kayla Miller’s graphic novel. Olive “clicks” with everyone in the fifth grade – until one day she doesn’t. When a school variety show leaves Olive stranded without an act to join, she begins to panic, wondering why all her friends have already formed their own groups…without her. Will Olive be able to find her own place in the show before the curtain comes up?
