WILL AND WHIT by Laura Lee Gulledge. Amulet, 2013.
Dark and light, friends and family, past and present: these are not dichotomies in the hands of Gulledge. Instead, they are two sides of the same coins. It is in the darkness that light can shine; and in the light, a slice of darkness stands out for all to see. In this visual medium, the story of Will (Wilhemina) an artist who struggles with her fear of the dark. The WHIT in the title refers to Hurricane Whitney, a force not unlike Will: she needs to be reckoned with.
