Speak: The Graphic NovelMore Staff Picks +
For fans of Laurie Halse Anderson's novel Speak, comes the graphic novel version. The main character is Melinda, throughout the story she uses art as a means of solace for her pain. Reading the story through another artist's interpretation helped me relate to the character's struggle even more and the impact of watching the scenes unfold made metaphors I didn't pick up in the novel version stick out even more.

Authentically, IzzyMore Staff Picks +
A nice, CLEAN romance with cute characters, tons of bookish references, and a heavy dose of humor. I enjoyed getting to know the characters through their correspondences to each other, which makes the book fun to read! I have a new fondness for sweater vests and hilarious book t-shirts! The depth of love both families have for each other is evident and the author paints lovely pictures of "home".
Lapvona: A NovelMore Staff Picks +
Lapvona is an entrancing read, full of brutal imagery, mordant humor, and a cast of pathetically tragic characters. It's a novel you have read to believe.
