Speak : the graphic novel

Laurie Halse Anderson

GRAPHIC NOVEL Anderson
Graphic Novels, Young Adult, Fiction

"Speak up for yourself--we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless--an outcast--because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her.

Morgan's picture

Emily Carroll was the perfect artist to adapt Anderson's original novel. Her art has an edgy, raw aesthetic that effectively translates the haunting story of sexual assault, shame and high school life to the graphic novel format. The many wordless panels intensify the painful silences that Melinda endures, making the words she does speak even more powerful. A must read for all comics fans. -Morgan

Nicole J. Georges

BIOGRAPHY Georges, Nicole J.
Graphic Novels

From an award-winning artist, a memoir of life with a difficult, beloved dog that will resonate with anybody who has ever had a less than perfectly behaved pet. When Nicole Georges was sixteen she adopted Beija, a dysfunctional shar-pei/corgi mix--a troublesome combination of tiny and attack, just like teenaged Nicole herself. For the next fifteen years, Beija would be the one constant in her life. Through depression, relationships gone awry, and an unmoored young adulthood played out against the backdrop of the Portland punk scene, Beija was there, wearing her "Don't Pet Me" bandana. Georges's gorgeous graphic novel Fetch chronicles their symbiotic, codependent relationship and probes what it means to care for and be responsible to another living thing--a living thing that occasionally lunges at toddlers. Nicole turns to vets, dog whisperers, and even a pet psychic for help, but it is the moments of accommodation, adaption, and compassion that sustain them. Nicole never successfully taught Beija "sit," but in the end, Beija taught Nicole how to stay. -- Provided by publisher.
