Awkward by Svetlana Chmakova

Fans of Raina Telgemeir (Drama, Ghosts, Smile) (GN FIC TEL) and Roller Girl (GN FIC JAM), should enjoy this new series by Svetlana Chmakova. Awkward (GN FIC CHM), and its sequel Brave, are about the fears, worries and pains of starting out in Middle School. Peopled with characters that are easy to connect to, Awkward reminds us how friendships can sometimes get off to a bumpy start and a bit of healthy rivalry can provide the perfect spark for some great teamwork.

A thoughtful and fun graphic novel, that is already proving very popular. You may well need to reserve this one!
