I LOVED this book! I always wished I had a brother or brothers. J I do gain one brother when I get married next year – admittedly it’s a little different, since I did not grow up with him.
This graphic novel is about Maggie, who is about to attend her local high school after having been home-schooled her whole life. She has three older brothers and has never really socialized with anyone but her family. At school, she has to navigate a new environment and figure out how to make friends. Friends with Boys is a great coming-of-age story with compelling characters. I love the dynamic Maggie has with her family and how she handles high school.
The art is fantastic! My fiancé read this as a web comic and later bought the trade paperback when it was released to support Ms. Hicks. I could not put it down – I understand it was agonizing having to wait for each successive page. ;) I recommend to teenagers and adults.
