Friends with Boys by Faith Erin Hicks ADVISABLE

Hicks, Faith Erin Friends with Boys 224 pgs. First Second publishers. Swears - 1

Maggie has been home schooled, until her sophomore year when she starts at the public high school. She struggles to find her place in the outside world, which is only made more difficult when she is haunted by a ghost.

This was a really fun graphic novel. Slice of life, covering the first few months of Maggie's public school experience. One of the plot lines resolves, but the others don't. There isn't a pat ending, which I rather liked. The illustrations are black and white and fun and expressive. I really enjoyed it.
