Curses! Foiled Again (Book #2) by Jane Yolen –ADVISABLE

Yolen, Jane and Illustrated by Cavallaro, Mike Curses! Foiled Again (Book #2)  176 pgs. First Second, 2013. $7.95  Content: Language: PG (0 swears);  Mature Content: PG ;  Violence: PG.
As the defender, Aliera knows that she is supposed to use her super cool foil to help protect the fairy realm of Seelie from evil. But how to do that is the big question. Also the hottie from school, Avery, a boy by day and a troll by night, is totally bugging her and she doesn’t trust him. She turns to her cousin Caroline for ideas and ends up placing her in mortal danger!
Although I didn't read the first book in this series, but the author did a great job of letting me know what happened without rehashing too much or leaving me confused. The chapters and design was innovative and the art style was fun and interesting. I like how the main character just sort of muddles along and is really brave too. This would be a fun series to add to your graphic novel collection and it might just prompt some fencing tryouts!
