All’s Faire In Middle School by Victoria Jamieson
We loved Jamieson’s first graphic novel, Roller Girl, and have been eagerly anticipating her newest book. Now we can confirm that her fans will not be disappointed. Imogene (Impy) is a terrific character, and readers can empathize with her as she meets the challenges of middle school, growing up, and dealing with a range of emotions. The weaving in of the Renaissance Faire is a wonderful device to help carry the plot, too. Drama, action, lots of humor, and lovely artwork. Tweens will love it–and I recommend that the adults in their life read it as well. Great for discussion and family sharing.
