By the well-known author of American Born Chinese

Saints by Gene Luen Yang

By: Gene Luen Yang

Genre: YA graphic novel

Pages: 170

Published: 2013

Read: April

3 out of 5

I had a hard time rating this book. There were some parts that I didn’t really understand, so I can’t say I loved or even really liked the book. However, I love the artwork and how it fit the story so well. I also have to give the author a great deal of credit for writing about such a controversial issue, religion, in a main stream YA book. I love his honest, but blunt approach on the subject with a touch of humor. For these reasons and the fact that I found it easier to follow than American Born Chinese I feel it deserves at least 3 stars. When I choose to read it, I thought that Boxers and Saints were companion novels so I read Saints (which is actually supposed to be read second) first. I may eventually read Boxers, but I am not making it a priority.
