This One Summer (YA)


Book #65 Read in 2015
This One Summer by Jillian Tamaki and Mariko Tamaki (YA)

I am not a huge reader of graphic novels but I liked this one.  Two young girls reconnect every summer at their family's cabins.  This summer, one is dealing with the problems her parents are having after her mother suffers a miscarriage.  While the format seems light and fun, the story tells with heavy issues such as possible divorce, adoption, teenage pregnancy and coming of age.  Both the writing and the illustrations were well done.  I enjoyed it.  I believe middle school girls would especially like this book.  I borrowed this book from my public library.
