Frizzy Written by Claribel A. Ortega

Frizzy is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel for anyone who has ever had to justify their own appearance. I instantly connected with Marlene’s challenge in trying to be herself amidst a whirlwind of adults, peers, and family members pressuring her to conform. I reveled in all of her successes as she learned to stand up for herself, and I couldn’t put the book down until I knew she’d be okay.

Crabgrass: Comic Adventures by Tauhid Bondia

Tauhid Bondia’s Kevin and Miles spring to life with hijinks that are sometimes a four-panel joke, sometimes famed exploits. The adventures of these two kids involve school and family, imagined and real-life (mild) danger, and the bonds of friendship, which are tested but never broken. Bondia draws and writes in the tradition of Foxtrot and Calvin and Hobbes, building stories you can read for just a minute or for hours. Great for any kid looking for something fast, fun, and real.

D&D Dungeon Club: Roll Call, Book 1 Written by Molly Knox Ostertag, Illustrated Xanthe Bouma

Calling all nerds and storytellers! This fun new graphic novel series follows a party of teen D&D players through tabletop and real-life adventures. Xanthe Bouma’s vivid, awesome art propels you through Molly Knox Ostertag’s all-too-relatable story exploring friendship, fear, and why it can be so hard to be your authentic self in real life. I dare you to not love these characters, flaws and all. I know I am already (im)patiently waiting for the next book!
