Have You Seen These New Graphic Novels?


Click
by Kayla Miller
REALISTIC
Click is an excellent, relatable book about friendships and finding your place –my daughter felt could have been her own story. When the talent show is announced, everyone in Olive’s friend group makes pairs and groups up but don’t include her. She feels really left out. Olive’s cool aunt watches variety show videos with her to help Olive get ideas. It does give Olive an idea — to be the host of the show. That’s something she can do on her own. I like that the book contains realistic family situations (a slightly overbearing mom,) realistic friend challenges, the relatable feeling of loneliness among your classmates, and then, a really creative resolution. The artwork is eye-catching, too.

Conspiracy of Ravens
by Leah Moore, John Reppion, and Sally Jane Thompson
FANTASY
My middle school daughter and I love this action-packed fantasy graphic novel about a girl named Anne who inherits an estate called Ravenhall and magical locket from a long-lost relative. Anne discovers that the locket connects her to the power of ravens; she can transport from one place to another. Not only that, Anne learns that other girls also are also descendants of the first group of magical women, each connected to magical jewelry and specific birds. But just as Anne is trying to figure things out with the other girls, the group is attacked by a power-hungry woman with an army of robots. The artwork is exceptional — very expressive of the action and emotions! The bird connection is so cool as is the realistic portrayal of the ups and downs of uniting a diverse group of girls.

Sanity & Tallulah
by Molly Brooks
SCI-FI
Sanity and Tallulah are two good friends who live on a space station. Sanity is a brilliant inventor — but her newest (illegal) creation, a three-headed kitten named Princess Destroyer of Worlds has escaped and is living up to her name — destroyer. The friends look for their missing kitten but instead discover a big problem that will destroy the space station only it’s not caused by the kitten. While the station is evacuated, the friends work hard to stop the duct weasels and the engine from overheating. I love the space station setting, the super-smart problem-solving main characters, and the non-stop action.

 


Making Friends
by Kristen Gudsnuk
My tween daughter likes that this story is about a hero whose motives are very relatable — making friends. In a story with a unique plot and expressive art style, you’ll see how Danny uses her magic sketchbook to help solve her friend problem. Which, totally backfires as you can imagine…First, she draws a head-only comic book character named Prince Neptune. Then, she draws her idea of a perfect best friend. But her new friend has questions about her past and why she’s staying at Danny’s without her parents. Things are about to get complicated!

 


Short and Skinny
by Mark Tatulli
The author shares his own middle school life story in this graphic novel about bullying and crushes and Star Wars…This book will be relatable to kids who feel unokay and left out.
