Staff Reviews

Pixels of You is a graphic novel that tells the story of both a human-presenting AI named Fawn, and a young woman named Indira, who after a tragic accident has been cybernetically augmented. Fawn and Indira are forced to work together when a disagreement causes a scene at the art gallery they both intern at. Through working together, both discover similarities that they weren't expecting, and in the end their dislike of the other becomes something more. Pixels of You is more than a sweet enemies-to-lovers. It's filled with characters, both AI and human, battling anxiety, PTSD, racism, bias, and identity crises. I loved seeing the character development of the two girls and the art was beautifully done, a great combination of being colorful, and moody that kept me turning the page to see more. -Victoria 


A human and human-presenting AI slowly become friends—and maybe more—in this moving YA graphic novel from award-winning writers Ananth Hirsh and Yuko Ota, and illustrator J.R. Doyle.

“A sweet, smart tale of art, bitterness, enmity, and camaraderie.”—New York Times bestselling author Cory Doctorow

In a near future, augmentation and AI changed everything and nothing. Indira is a human girl who has been cybernetically augmented after a tragic accident, and Fawn is one of the first human-presenting AI. They have the same internship at a gallery, but neither thinks much of the other’s photography. After a huge public blowout, their mentor gives them an ultimatum: work together on a project or leave her gallery forever. Grudgingly, the two begin to collaborate, and what comes out of it is astounding and revealing for both of them.

Pixels of You is about the slow transformation of a rivalry to a friendship to something more as Indira and Fawn navigate each other, the world around them—and what it means to be an artist and a person.

Praise For…

"Ultimately a short but sweet story about two girls slowly falling in love. . .The art, however, is striking, with bold, stark colors; plays on light and dark; and disrupted frames depicting photos and extending emotional moments."—Kirkus Reviews

"The robot/human relationship serves as a reflection on managing cultural alienation, and the girls’ chemistry is well developed, building to a surprising, sweet conclusion. Hirsh and Ota’s story is a combination of broad narrative strokes and intimate moments, and Doyle’s manga-inspired, deliciously purple and pink illustrations float with ease through a near-future New York." —School Library Journal
