Twelve-year-old Suee wears black, parts her hair differently, does not have friends in her new school and she likes it that way. Or does she?

This new graphic novel mixes the issues of school, friendship, family and trying to fit in when all you do is stick out for one reason or another. Ages 10 up. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

She keeps trying to say sorry, but it's just too awkward - will she have to spend the rest of the school year hiding like a ninja whenever she sees him?! And now the Art Club, the only place she has friends, is in danger. The principle says they need to "contribute to school community" if they want to have a club next year! Can they save Art Club? Maybe with the help of their enemies, the Science Club, and that boy... if they can face the awkwardness of asking! ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore

I started reading this book when it was still an online comic, and I waited impatiently for entire weeks just to read the next page!! Noelle Stevenson is a brilliant artist and storywriter, creating a many-layered story that gives something different to each person on each reading.
Nimona has everything: a great girl superhero, an amputee protagonist, humor and silliness for kids, darkness for bigger kids, magic, science, dragons, sharks, rhinos, cute kitties, mystery, rebellion - Nimona is my hero and I never get tired of this book, and neither will you. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

Published: Zest Books - September 2nd, 2014

Fans of Drama and Smile will love this graphic novel memoir! Follow Liz from K-12th grade, watch as she goes from happy Ghostbusting kid to an angsty comic-drawing teen! It's a long tough road full of bullies and self-discovery, of being forced to wear dressed and always called "tomboy".
Great read for kids 12+ (Liz's teen years have some some swearing and drugs mentioned), or adults who loved the graphic novel memoir Fun Home! ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore
