Ferris creates the art journal and diary of Karen Reyes, a 1960s Chicago pre-teen, balancing the difficulties of her own adolescence with a family that‘s only marginally stable. And what she wants most in the world is to become a werewolf.

If you like a quirky kid, stories of growing up too fast, and fantastic art, give this graphic novel a whirl.

The more comics/graphic novels I read, the more I think they just aren‘t for me. 😔 As I mentioned in my review of “Hey, Kiddo” my typical reaction after finishing one is usually something along the lines of, “Mmkay... Well, I read it...” 🤷🏽‍♀️ which is basically what happened with this. I‘m honestly not sure what to say about it, I just feel pretty indifferent to it. *Sigh* Maybe someday I‘ll find one that‘ll click with me...

JenFowler Maybe they just aren't for you? I haven't been able to find any I enjoy either. 3w
Scochrane26 I‘ve had a hard time getting into any either. Have read a few for book challenges. The 2 GNs i have read—Nimona & Pumpkinheads, I have loved. 3w
Samplergal I haven‘t found any either. ❤️ 3w
Cinfhen I‘ve tried also & I just don‘t appreciate the art form. I thought the GN adaptation of Handmaid‘s Tale was ok. 3w

I bought this AGES ago, thought maybe I‘d read it for the Halloween season this year. Alas, I‘m just now starting...but it‘s intriguing so far. Can‘t wait to see what my granddaughter thinks of it this afternoon (she‘s nine). #comicorgraphicnovel #booked2020 #lasthosttofinish

Cinfhen Enjoy your afternoon guest 😘 3w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen I will. Right now she‘s making paper airplanes! 3w
writerlibrarian It is one of the really popular books at my library. We had to buy additional copies twice already. 3w

BarbaraTheBibliophage @writerlibrarian I can imagine! It sure isn‘t a kids book ... even though the MC is one. 3w
writerlibrarian @BarbaraTheBibliophage it is very much an adult book. The French translation edition is a soft cover one. We have to send them to be bind into a hardcover so the books aren't damaged after a couple of loans. 3w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @writerlibrarian I‘m being so careful with mine—it seems like I could break the spine in a snap! 3w

I'm not a huge fan of graphic novels, and while this one's artwork didn't quite hit the mark for me, I loved its message to know your own self worth and to surround yourself with people who know it too.

Cinfhen Cover art is pretty wonderful 💕 3w
ferskner @Cinfhen agreed! There were some gorgeous panels, but overall I found the story difficult to understand through the art. 3w
Cinfhen Thats disappointing ESPECIALLY for a GN ☹️ 3w

On the street of Via Saterna in Milan, there exists a mansion guarded by a wall, rumored to be a #borderline between life and death. Once Orfi sees his girlfriend disappear behind the wall, he must follow her and find the truth for himself. This is a bizarre read for sure, with trippy illustrations to match... I read this for #booked2019 #comicorgraphicnovel #movember

Reviewsbylola Ummm this sounds like I would hate it but it looks really cool! 4w
BarbaraBB Sounds like I would love it! Are the graphics just on the cover or inside as well? 4w

“I Was a Teenage Apocalypse”
Sadie Ritter thought having a baby at sixteen was hard enough, but things can get worse. She finds out that her baby, Clark, may be the Antichrist or King of Hell, which opens up a whole new dimension of worse. I really liked this one. It ends abruptly so I‘m definitely going to have get the next volume soon. #Booked2019 #comicorgraphicnovel #GraphicNovel2019 #screamathon #screamathonphotochallenge #graveyard

Reggie So are we rooting for anyone in this comic? The human race? The mother? The antichrist? 2mo
Bookzombie @Reggie I guess at this moment, I‘m rooting for the mother, her father, and her kick-ass sister Helen (who is a little psycho), plus the antichrist. It‘s hard not to root for a baby when assassins come at him. Lol. 2mo
Reggie Lol, awesome!! 2mo

#Booked 2019 #Summer #ComicOrGraphicNovel

I loved this graphic non-novel, but it comes with a couple of caveats: first, if you aren‘t a dyed-in-the-wool hip hop fan, this may not be for you; second, if you‘re not interested in learning about ALL of the personalities involved in making hip hop what it is today, this may not be for you; finally, if you‘re looking for more detail (and perhaps fewer characters) about each artist and his or her ⬇️

gradcat ⬆️ (Cont.) contribution to the form, then this may not be for you. To read the history of hip hop in graphic form is fantastic, but I found myself more than once looking for more detail about the early progenitors on their websites or other sites. Still, the art is fantastic and it‘s great fun if this is your jam. 4mo
Cinfhen Hi!!! Awesome review 😎👍🏻I‘m sure the art would win out for me too♥️ 4mo
gradcat @cinfhen Thank you, and I do hope you are home, safe & sound in your own bed. ♥️ 3mo

Crazeedi Hey girlfriend, are you doing ok? Havent seen you on here,🤔 3mo
gradcat @Crazeedi I‘ve had company for the weekend, so I‘ve been a bit tied up. I did send you a longish email, before I sent the one where I had you down for the wrong birthday month—I hope you got it! I‘m only just now posting my review for the buddy read. Can you believe it?? 😂 3mo
Crazeedi @gradcat I'm sure I got it and probably didn't respond, so sorry! I had a couple rough days!! 3mo
gradcat @Crazeedi How thoughtless I can be sometimes! So sorry...I haven‘t even asked how you are doing. I really hope everything is okay. Are you feeling well? ♥️ 3mo
