Kay is a modern poet dealing with issues such as growing up in a Japanese-Jewish-American household, being the skinny kid, being shy around girls, about love, life and death. He believes every story has beginning, middle and end. But not necessarily in that order; and sets his book up to follow this. His poems show how words are important: words spoken, not spoken, yelled, and overheard. Teens (at least 14) to adult are the best audience for his works. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
A snap shot of two girls during the summer their innocence is partly-lost, one comes to an understanding of herself and both learn that growing pains take on different forms. The themes, language and situations are realistic. There is some mature language and while no actual sexual scenes are shown, images can be sexual with overtones to having sex and pregnancy. Therefore, this is for mature/strong ages 13 to adult. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
This is not your Mother's D&D game! Humor, bad puns, crazy situations, spells, fourth wall breaking and more! Based on the McElroy's podcast, the reader enters a world of a role playing game where things are not always what they seem, but are always interesting. You do not need to be a fan of the game, just a good time (ages 14 up some mature content/langue) ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
Created by Jackson’s grandson, Miles Hyman, you see the action of her original text. Full color pieces of art show you what is any town USA. The suspense of the buildup to the drawing of the lottery is seen on the faces of the characters. They capture their glee, fear, boredom, and, later, even their tuning out their humanity. The limited text captures the feeling of Jackson’s story while the illustrations capture the time and place while adding to the meaning of Jackson’s message. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
Takei tells his story in graphic novel format. The years from early/mid-1940s to today, show Takei a child of the Japanese-American internment camps (or as he calls them, incarceration camps) to present day adult who still fights for equality. History and the present blend together realistically (but not in a graphic manner). Take your time to read the illustrations, as they give elements words cannot. Can be for strong pre-teens, but ages 14 to adult are the audience. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
