A Little Bit of Everything in This Graphic Novel...

Friends with Boys by Faith Erin Hicks
Friends with Boys

By: Faith Erin Hicks

Genre: YA graphic novel

Pages: 220

Published: 2012

Read: March

3.5 out of 5

This graphic novel contains a little of everything - relationships, family values, drama club, zombies, ghosts, horror movies, high school life, home schooling, theft, single parenting, etc. Every reader should be able to connect with some aspect of this novel. The artistic expressions are realistic and flow nicely with story adding to the dialogue. I found it interesting that Hicks included early sketches of characters and scenes in the back of book. Surprisingly, I found that I preferred some of those better than the ones that made the story. Overall, this is a great graphic novel for teens or adults who want to reminisce about their high school days!
