So throughout my summer reading, I delved into some graphic novels and am happy to report - I am in love. And that weird voice in my head has been forever silenced. Here are a few of my favorite summer graphic novel reads!
Real Friends by Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham
Just take a glimpse at one of my favorite (and yet so heart-wrenching) panels:
"I could see why Adrienne might want Jen as a best friend instead of me."
Any upper elementary or middle school students truly could instantly connect to this story. We've all felt 'other' at some point, and this memoir recounts the ups and downs of that like no other. What a great book to connect to other novels MG & YA dealing with discussions of friendship, loyalty, self-esteem, and so many other coming-of-age stories.
