When Julia finds a slur about her best friend scrawled across the back of the Kingston School for the Deaf, she covers it up with a beautiful (albeit illegal) graffiti mural. Her supposed best friend snitches, the principal expels her, and her two mothers set Julia up with a one-way ticket to a "mainstream" school in the suburbs, where she's treated like an outcast as the only deaf student. The last thing she has left is her art, and not even Banksy himself could convince her to give that up. Out in the 'burbs, Julia paints anywhere she can, eager to claim some turf of her own. But Julia soon learns that she might not be the only vandal in town. Someone is adding to her tags, making them better, showing off-and showing Julia up in the process. She expected her art might get painted over by cops. But she never imagined getting dragged into a full-blown graffiti war. Told with wit and grit by debut author Whitney Gardner, who also provides gorgeous interior illustrations of Julia's graffiti tags, You're Welcome, Universe introduces audiences to a one-of-a-kind protagonist who is unabashedly herself no matter what life throws in her way. " A spectacular debut...a moving, beautifully written contemporary novel full of quirky art and complicated friendships...this book is a gift to be thankful for."-BookRiot… (més)

I have to give this one four stars, although it's really only a 3-star read . . . because it was SO awesome for me to read fiction about a girl with two moms :) ( )

diverse teen fiction - Deaf teen (who is incidentally East Indian-American w/2 moms navigates new high school and makes a new friend who struggles with an eating disorder); graffiti artists.

I am not a member of the Deaf community but based on other things I've read, this felt well-researched, and the details--from not being able to read lips perfectly when people are talking too quickly or have an accent, to being insulted by ESL teachers felt real.

parental notes: lots of language (f-bombs), an ill-advised vengeful kissing scene, and oh yeah, some illegal graffiti. Julia doesn't always make the right choices but she does love her moms a lot, and in the end learns a lot about true friendship. ( )

After getting kicked out of her all deaf high school, Julia ends up in a tagging war with another grafitti artist. Julia's plans are to just be invisible and practice her art. Invisibility is hard when there is someone in class signing every word spoken. She reluctantly makes friends with a "hearie" who learns to sign and speak to her. Both girls have issues, but if they can figure out what real friendship means to them, together they would make a good pair. I really liked this book and it's focus on street art and female friendships.

The writing was so descriptive. "I spot a red leaf here and there, pilot lights to the season." (p. 8)
And my favorite "librarianish" quote: "I want to tell her you don't read anything on Google itself, but whatever." (p. 182) ( )

I read this book through the lens of considering myself part of a street-art community, through the admittedly non-permanent medium of yarn-bombing. I appreciated the detail and nuance that went into the protagonist, Julia, assembling supplies, preparing stencils, and applying her art.

One area where I struggled to connect with the main character's viewpoint was that when another artist modified her piece, she considered it in terms of being "shown up," of the other artist declaring "war" on her. Another character, YP, even asks Julia, "Why does it have to be war?"

You're Welcome, Universe was a 2018 recipient of the Schneider Family Book Award, which honors an author or illustrator "for a book that embodies an artistic expression of the disability experience." I've long followed this award, as a person on the autism spectrum. The emphasis on art made this book, in particular, one that I especially wanted to read. ( )
