CR: The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl (YA)
CR: The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl
I am reading this book for my ya literature class--the genre this month is realistic fiction. Fanboy is a HS student who loves graphic novels. He doesn't really have many friends in high school. Goth Girl contacts him after seeing him get hit repeatedly during a dodge ball game in PE class. She wants to know why he doesn't do something to stop the bullying.
I'm about halfway through the book and Goth Girl has a slightly dark and violent bent that I'm wondering about. There is a lot of humor in this book which I am liking. I could see both HS boys and girls enjoying this book.
