Mend by Sophia Recca - OPTIONAL

Recca, Sophia Mend. 50 pages. GRAPHIC NOVEL.  Zuiker Press 2018. $10.  Language: G (0 swears) Mature Content: PG Violence: G   

Sophia has a happy home life and can’t imagine anything changing. Until one day her world does change. As her mother and father work through their tumultuous divorce right in front of her, she scrambles to keep her family together and try not to blame herself.  

This was a pretty flimsy interpretation of how a child would actually feel during their parent’s divorce. It makes a lot of surface observations but there is little to no depth in the narrative. I don’t even know what the target audience for this book would be, as it’s too simplistic for a middle schooler but too advanced for a young child.
