New Book Recommendation--In The Shadows

In The Shadows by Kiersten White and Jim Di Bartolo

"AWESOME! Unique alternating chapters of text and graphics. Mystery that keeps you guessing until the end....great job by White and Di Bartolo. Will be highly recommending this one to our teens and YA readers."

Those were my initial reactions upon finishing this book.  I am not a regular reader of graphic novel materials but I have been recently exploring them.  I had this book requested before I truly understood that it was a collaboration between author White and artist, Di Bartolo.

The book unfolds like a puzzle. The reader is left guessing until the conclusion so none of the characters are "safe" for the reader.  Di Bartolo's illustrations give an extra component of mystery as well as plot. White is an already established mega-author and this book will not disappoint her fans.
