Do you love comics and want to try something new? Read an illustrated novel! Some are hybrids of books and comics, some are journals full of drawings, notes, and doodles. Here are a few to try:

The accidental genius of Weasel High by Rick Detorie
Larkin Pace, a film-obsessed high school  freshman, chronicles his experiences as he tries to raise money for a new camcorder and get a date with the girl who has been his best friend since third grade.
The absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie
Budding cartoonist Junior leaves his troubled school on the Spokane Indian Reservation to attend an all-white farm town school where the only other Indian is the school mascot.
Happyface by Stephen Emond
After going through traumatic times, a troubled, socially awkward teenager moves to a new school  where he tries to reinvent himself.
Flashcards of my life by Charise Harper
Emily’s life in junior high school and at home is revealed as she uses the journaling flashcards her Aunt Chester sent as a birthday gift to help sort through changing friendships, possible boyfriends, and her mother’s obsession with nutty desserts.
Malice by Chris Wooding
Once you get into the story, there’s no way out. Everyone’s heard the rumors. If you gather the right things and say the right words, you’ll be taken to Malice, a world that exists inside a horrifying comic book. It’s a world that few kids know about … and even fewer survive.  Seth and Kady think it’s all a silly myth. But then their friend, Luke, disappears and suddenly the rumors don’t seem silly after all. Malice is real. Malice is deadly. And Seth  and Kady are about to be trapped inside it. Sequel Havoc is now available.
