the stonekeeperThis was actually recommend to me by a teen at my library, especially once he heard that I was starting a graphic novel club. And I got to say, not bad there kid. You got a good start here.

There’s something strange behind the basement door…

After a family tragedy, Emily, Navin and their mother move to an ancestral home to start a new life. On the family’s very first night in the mysterious house, Em and Navin’s mom is kidnapped by a tentacled creature. Now it’s up to Em and Navin to figure out how to set things right and save their mother’s life!

This was a cute story about a girl struggling to come to terms with a tragedy that has come her to family and trying to figure out how to grow up in this world now where not everything is as black and white as it first seemed. And as Emily tries to figure out how to make this new life work with her mother and brother in this creepy old house, things take another turn for the worst.

I enjoy graphic novels, but ones that show kids growing up and learning to come to terms with things they may not like nor enjoy are some of the best stories that humanity can tell. They tell you the strength of the next generation and what that will mean for those who come after us.

What are the sorts of stories you wish to read? Why do you read them? Comment below and let me know!
