Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor
She is actually going to be very happy tomorrow. Starisght (Skyward Book 2) just shipped today, and arrives tomorrow. I told her she can read it even before I do because I am just so happy she loves reading.
Awesome!! I am also super excited for tomorrow.
Any specific graphic novel recommendations? My daughter (12yo) has read a few ranging from the new Babysitter's Club graphic novels to Hockey!. However we're having a hard time finding others she's particularly interested in. I keep suggesting non-graphic novels, too. However, she promptly asks, "Is it a graphic novel," and then groans when my response is "probably not."
My son (15yo) likes graphic novels much better than chapter books, too.
Eta: I'm having them read through a list of Goodreads search results for "graphic novels" to see if anything sounds intriguing, too. **crosses fingers**
All's Faire in Middle School is a good one.
Lumberjanes!! They're so good. I guess it's technically a comic series not a graphic novel? Still. They're perfect for a 12 yr old.
When I was that age my favorite graphic novel was Elfquest
You mentioned she reads at about 7 to 8. May I recommend the Phantom Tollbooth? A classic and a very good read. Another good book, which is a true story is Island of the Blue Dolphin which is about a young girl left alone on an island. I tend to love the classics.
Another thing that's billed as YA which I loved was Sanderson's Reckoners series. I can't fully remember if there's much violence in the books; it might be more appropriate for teens.
Animorphs. I will never not take a chance to recommend that one
I second that. Such a good series and thoughtful ending.
