first day melancholy

A cool new graphic novel about fitting in.

Friends With Boys by Faith Erin Hicks is the story of Maggie's first day of school. She is about to join her three brothers in high school after a lifetime of home-schooling. To make matters worse, her mother has left the family and her brothers have begun fighting. Understandably, Maggie is feeling nervous and unsettled. 

Have I mentioned there's a ghost too? This might make you think of Anya's Ghost... but the two are quite different.

It's a sweet story and a great graphic novel.

Check out the first few pages HERE.
