From New York Times bestselling columnist Mariko Tamaki( Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass) and craftsman Yoshi Yoshitani( Zatanna and the House of Mystery) comes a narrative about Mandy, the daughter of super-famous superhero Starfire, and her desperate attempts to get out from under her shadow.
Seventeen-year-old Mandy Koriand’r is not her father. Daughter of Starfire and high school outcast, Mandy is constantly trying to get out from under the shadow of her color, bubbly, scantily attired, and far-famed mother. Dyeing her shining orange whisker black and remaining close to her best good friend, Lincoln, Mandy spends her periods at academy shunning Teen Titans superfans and trying to hide her feelings for the ravishing, favourite, and perfect Claire. And while Mandy generally forestalls expend too much time with her foreigner baby, she’s been particularly quiet as she’s keeping one major mystery from her: Mandy went out of her S.A.T.
While Mandy continues to tell Lincoln her schemes of moving to France to escape the family spotlight and not go to college, she privately secretes a horror of not knowing her identity outside of time being the daughter of a superhero and who she will become. But when she is partnered with Claire to work on a school project, their friendship develops into something more and a self-confidence unknown to Mandy begins to bloom. Claire seems to like Mandy for being Mandy , not the daughter of Starfire.
But when someone from Starfire’s past comes to disrupt Mandy’s future, Mandy must finally make a choice: give up before the engagement has even begun, or step into the unknown and risk everything. I Am Not Starfire is a story about mother-daughter affairs, hugging where you come from while noting your own identity, and learning to be unafraid of miscarrying, if it was even flunking in the first place.
