An adorably gay graphic novel about a nerdy highschool boy and a sweeter-than-cake jock boy in England. I gasped, I screamed, and I had heart-eyes through the entire book. I devoured this book in its entirety in the matter of two hours. I could relate to both Charlie and Nick as their characters' journey’s of discovery came to be shown throughout the story. I look forward to reading the 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th volumes. As well as seeing the highly anticipated musical coming to Netflix. This series will be a classic staple for the LGBTQ+ community. ~ Reviewed by Jules Wagner

We follow Yehudi Mercado as he struggles with his lack of athletic ability, his health issues, and his parents, but regardless of the outcomes always seems to be okay with the results. Hudi might not have been great at baseball, soccer, swimming, or football, but he did not lose. He just has a perfect record of not winning. Hudi and his BFF Chunky (an invisible mascot) take on bullies, family, and comedy. Chunky is based on Mecado’s own life as a middle class Mexican Jewish kid with a funny name. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

This is a powerfully short and wordless graphic novel about anxiety and its damaging effects on our mental well being. What I loved most about this is that it's told from a child's point of view, rather than an adult's, and it shows the ways anxiety can "chip" away at our minds if left unresolved for too long. In these pages, the unnamed boy also finds help, and realizes that anxiety is a battle he doesn't ever have to fight alone. Mental health is an important topic that needs more attention and support for the younger generation, and I am so glad that this addresses it in a gut-punching way with striking illustrations. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

Breathing new life into the beloved 1980s middle-grade series about teenage sitters, this graphic novel series is filled with all the stories, characters, humor, and heart that made the original books a phenomenon. Now that the Babysitter's Club has made it to the small screen in a July 2020 Netflix series, there's no better time to revisit (or discover) the growing pains, laughs, and drama as a bunch of junior high girls try to figure out childcare and life. ~ Reviewed by Virginia Edinger
