Teen Titans: Beast Boy
Then Gar accepts a wild dare out of the blue. It impresses the popular kids, and his social status soars. But other things are changing, too. Gar grows six inches overnight. His voice drops, and suddenly, he's stronger and faster. He's finally getting everything he wanted, but his newfound popularity comes at a price. Gar has to work harder to impress his new friends. The dares keep getting bigger, and the stakes keep getting higher.
When Gar realizes the extent of his physical changes, he has to dig deep and face the truth about himself--and the people who truly matter--before his life spirals out of control.
I really liked how Gar was portrayed in this novel. It's refreshing to see the other side of his personality besides his goofy self. His self doubt is prevalent and I really like how he knows exactly what he wants to be. He realizes that the popularity isn't everything but he just wanted to know what it was like. There is not one person who says they really don't want to know. But Stella and Tank are always there to make sure he doesn't lose himself. As he is coming into his powers, it was nice to see the subtle way creatures reacted to him. Kami did such a great job writing his character out and really making us understand how he feels. And Gabriel's illustrations are phenomenal. I love the way he is drawing these characters and everything is so beautifully done.
I highly recommend this series. You don't have to be a fan of the original Teen Titans in order to get into this. It was so much fun to read the background story of Gat and I cannot wait to see where this story goes. The art is beautiful and really portrays the wonderful story Kami has written.
