I love Jen! She is funny, relatable, and resilient. Apple Crush does have one or two bits that I would say makes this a recommendation for older readers (mature 5th grade, or 6th grade and above), but overall is a great addition to this series. I‘m planning to check out Lucy Knisley‘s work for adults next! #applecrush #graphicnovel #middlegrades #2023

Middle grade novel about a boy that has undiagnosed OCD. There is also a love story and murder mystery thrown in there.

This story can be relatable to many children, and can be a faster read because it is a graphic novel. Because of this it could be a popular suggestion for the older grades. The text and the illustrations were very enjoyable.

This is a graphic novel about a girl named Jen who‘s facing problems such as her parents being divorced and having to move with her mother, adding new members to her family, and having to start a new school. Everyone at school is interested in crushed and dating but Jen is not, so this adds to even more of the challenge she has to navigate through

Jen and Andy take on gender roles, respect, romance (or an abhorrence for it), bullying (a little), and friendship as Andy falls for a boy and Jen just wishes romance would disappear. Cozy and delightful. I enjoyed adding another pumpkin-attraction-themed book to my fall repertoire. I‘ve read nonfiction by Lucy, and this was a really fun addition. The bullying subplot fizzled a bit, but the rest of the story was highly satisfying. #comics

GondorGirl I've loved all of Lucy's nonfiction, so I'll have to pick this one up. Her art is always charming and I love how many middle grade books are challenging this like gender norms. 2mo

I only just noticed that this is by the woman who wrote travelogues An Age of License, and Displacement 🤯 I really enjoyed those books, and am delighted to be reading her fiction now. #Comics

Oh would you look at that; my elderly dog fell asleep in my lap when I picked her up to warm her cold feet. I guess I‘ll just have to stay up way past my bedtime and read. 😉

Another book done for #DeweysReadathon #deweyoct and the witches are out dancing! I love all of Knisley‘s work, and this is a fun (and angsty) fall addition.

The cover speaks volumes for this book.
