Digging through my old copies of books, I came across a
graphic novel that has a twist. Half is in the graphic novel format (text and
illustrations) but the other half is a straight out story. I was very
interested since I do not usually like graphic novels, but enjoy the novels of Cecil
What was this book? The Year of the Beasts by Castellucci. She combines a story of two sisters, one
who has a terrible secret. But as you go along, you learn that there are many
secrets and not everything is what it seems.
Castellucci combines the Greek myths and intertwines it with
a modern day story of two sisters who love each other very much, but even so,
jealousy is a dangerous emotion to have.
Not just for the graphic novel reader, The Year of the
Beasts takes the powerful voice of Castelucci and makes it a story for anyone
to relate to.
You can find Castelucci books , grpahic novels for all
readers and tastes or just plain darn good books here at the Northshire
Bookstore. There are treats, surprises and fun at every turn of the page!
