Kyle's Little SisterFeatured
Having a good-looking, friendly, outgoing older brother sucks—especially when you're the total opposite, someone who likes staying home and playing video games. Your parents like him better (even if they deny it!), and everyone calls you "Kyle's little sister" while looking disappointed that you're not more like him. I was really hoping I'd get to go to a different middle school, but no such luck. At least I have my friends...until he finds a way to ruin that, too...! Argh! What do I have to do to get out of his shadow?!
The art style will appeal to younger readers, but and has a bit of a Manga-like feel to it.
Like Telgemeier's story lines (would anyone read a novel about dental trauma?), this tale of mean girl drama in middle school will probably go over well with young readers who adore graphic novels, even ones like the Tessier and Amandine Chloe graphic novels. This is on trend with students struggling to find their place and navigate middle school while dealing with anxiety.
