FOREVER SUMMER FRIENDS
The August Young Adultery Book Club pick is This One Summer by Mariko & Jillian Tamaki > AUGUST 25
With their graphic novel This One Summer, writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Jillian Tamaki create a new approach to YA lit: a tale of teen angst told through the eyes of children. The book is narrated by preteen Rose, a girl old enough to not require constant adult supervision but young enough to avoid getting into real trouble. Rose and her parents are spending their summer at Awago beach. Summer is a frequent theme in coming-of-age stories, in that the two-month break from rules and structure for those young enough to actually have a vacation offers aninfinite number of possibilities."
