Bunt! Striking Out on Financial Aid

February 13

Illustrated cover for Bunt! Striking Out on Financial Aid. A Black teenage girl is shown from the knees up. She has her hair in two short braids and has green bangs, glasses, a white and green t-shirt, blue jean shorts, a backpack stuffed with art supplies, and a messenger bag stuffed with books about financial aid. She is winking at the viewer, has a baseball bat over one shoulder, and it showing off a paintbrush covered with green paint.Bunt! Striking Out on Financial Aid by Ngozi Ukazu & Mad Rupert
First Second

Molly Bauer’s first year of college is not the picture-perfect piece of art she’d always envisioned. On day one at PICA, Molly discovers that—through some horrible twist of fate—her full-ride scholarship has vanished! But the ancient texts (PICA’s dusty financial aid documents) reveal a loophole. If Molly and 9 other art students win a single game of softball, they’ll receive a massive athletic scholarship. Can Molly’s crew of ragtag artists succeed in softball without dropping the ball?

The author of the New York Times best-selling Check, Please series, Ngozi Ukazu returns with debut artist Madeline Rupert to bring an energetic young adult story about authenticity, old vs. new, and college failure. It also poses the question: “Is art school worth it?”
