May, a young teenage girl, traverses the city streets, finding keepsakes in different places along her journey. When May and her kookum make these keepsakes into a necklace, it opens a world of danger and fantasy.

A story of tragedy and beauty, Will I See illuminates the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women.

"I would recommend this book to anyone who likes graphic novels that are gritty, nonfiction, or emotional. Or to everyone, because it's that good!"

Hannah Waterman, NetGalley

"Absolutely unforgettable! Will I See? addresses the topic of violence against women with beauty and power. The black and white images are realistic, but there is also a dreamlike quality to them. Swaths of red add a dramatic flair, implying violence and death. Will I See? has a strong emotional affect and is best suited for teens and older readers. "

Stephenie Sasse, NetGalley

Will I See? is a powerful, evocative story that is amplified by visually stunning graphics. Through the eyes and actions of a teenage girl who resides with her Nokomis in a large city, the graphic novel speaks to the epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Canada.
