When faced with tremendous adversity, Ray and her husband Moth take an unusual path, literally. In a short span of time, they find themselves homeless and dealing with a terminal illness, and the way they deal with it is to walk, and keep walking. They embark on the epic 630 mile South West Coast Path, wild camping and living on less than $50 a week. Their journey is a joy to be taken on, an ode to human resilience, and a reminder of what’s important in life. I loved every minute of it! ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

His parents are sending him to a private school known for it’s academic excellence, and he is one of the few kids of color to attend. Jordan has to learn how to find his place, and be true to himself, in both his new school, and with the new dynamic he has with his friends at home.This book tackles many issues, such as racism, bullying, and fitting in, with great style and a lot of humor. It’s a great addition to the graphic novel genre. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
