Middle grade readers can’t get enough of graphic novels that reflect the real lives of kids. Join three authors whose illustrated novels explore the trials and tribulations, large and small, of regular girls. In Kayla Miller’s Crunch, Olive loves to try new things — but can a kid who loves to stay busy keep on top of all of these activities? Alexis Castellanos’s Isla to Island tells the story of Marisol’s journey from her beloved home in 1960s Cuba to cold Brooklyn — and it tells that story using only pictures and color without words. And Svetlana Chmakova returns to the world of Berrybrook Middle School with Enemies , where Felicity’s entry to an art contest might just be turning her friends against her. Author Colleen AF Venable leads the way while we explore the real worlds of these three graphic novel girls. Sponsored by Epic!
