A Holocaust story with a twist. A young, French-Jewish girl, Rachel, goes into hiding but does it in the open. She (and other children) do not stay in any one place too long (usually not by choice). They sometimes are only one step ahead of the Nazis at any point. Things move quickly, text wise, but the illustrations help show the changing time. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Trying to get groovy points can be hard when you rather play D&D then get Gloria Vanderbilt jeans. As Sunny tries to learn the rules to survive middle school, we see one spunky gal who knows who she is: a human fighter who always remembers to look up for the giant spiders! It just takes a couple rolls of the die to get her there. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

With her family and new friends behind her, Snap learns that who you are, is already there, you just need to find the outlet. Humor, fantasy and realism wrap up these diverse characters in a fun ages 10 to 14 graphic novel. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

This is Hale and Pham’s second relatable graphic novel. Adults and children ages 10 and up can relate to the rules of 6th grade. Just when you think you have it figured out, everything changes. Fast-paced and wonderfully illustrated. Step back in time to 1985, but with a timeless story. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
