Published: First Second - March 6th, 2018

Twenty-nine (thirty if you count the author) women are highlighted in this graphic novel. Some names we know (Mae Jemison) and others maybe not so much, but all of these women have somehow broken the barriers of patriarchy, color, sex, women’s health, and even gender. Meet Arab rappers, concubine empresses, dancers, authors, and more. Thirteen and up is the targeted audience due to sexual references and language. But adults, please read it, too! ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

A fantastical story following a human childe and a changeling who are switched at birth. Both must meet for the first time, and come together to save the below world in which the human childe lives.
This was a great, quick read with beautiful artwork, humor, adventure and just a touch of darkness! I am looking forward to reading the second graphic novel. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

When they develop a deep, loving bond for each other, they find the family they are looking for. Zabarsky’s illustrations bring to the front the feelings of the text. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Ages 8 to 10 can follow Kyle, Vic, Beth, Harry, and Nate, five kids with nothing in common but being at the Pathfinders camp, where kids swim, deal with random and frequent downpours of rain and bouts of fog, treasure hunt and dodge ridiculously smelly natural gas leaks. Their individual talents come into play as they start their adventure to finding the towns (possibly real) long lost treasure. In the meantime, they must deal with said gas, rain, the past and present overlapping (literally) and a creepy mansion. And if they find the treasure, it will stop the demolition of the mansion and their camp. So, you know, no pressure or anything. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
