Great Graphic Novels for Teens

Hi! It’s Jason, Young Adult Librarian. 

Before you say anything, yes, reading graphic novels counts as real reading. Just because they are in comic book style does not mean that the reader doesn’t come away with the same takeaways as a traditional, non-illustrated book. I always encourage reluctant readers to give graphic novels a try. But even for veteran readers such as myself, I find myself coming back to graphic novels again and again. 

So, if you’re looking for something to add to your already growing to-read list, look no further. Here is a list of my graphic novel recommendations!

Squad, by Maggie Tokuda-Hall

Mooncakes, by Suzanne Walker

The Girl & the Galdurian (Lightfall, Book 1), by Tim Prober

Messy Roots, by Laura Gao

Dancing at the Pity Party, by Tyler Feder

Artie and the Wolf Moon, by Olivia Stephens

It’s Your Funeral, by Emily Riesbeck

Life of Melody, by Mari Costa

Graceling, by Kristin Cashore

Enjoy!

-Jason Weissmann, Young Adult Librarian
