Everywhere Antennas by Julie Delporte

https://i1.wp.com/images.tcj.com/2014/05/ANTENNAS_delporte.jpgLeporte draws with coloured pencils, so there is a softness to the images here that go along with the story of Lily who, as the story progresses becomes more and more isolated from the world around her.  She becomes obsessed with the effects of electromagnetism from power lines and other objects and eventually move out to the country where she stays with her friend, and feels some relief from the natural world and the animals around her. The story ends with Lily calmer but still unsettled looking for a place where she can “sleep in the same place every night.”
