"All Sonia wanted was to find her missing cat, Victuals. But when he washes up on the shore of her sleepy coastal town several days later with a head full of stitches and the startling ability to speak - and no memory of how he got that way - her quiet life is forever changed. Together they set out to solve the mystery of his disappearance, embarking on a journey that leads to a strange kingdom under the waves and into the heart of a royal power struggle, where the answer to Victuals' true identity could save or doom them all!"

Great Graphic Novels for Teens announced at ALA 2014 Midwinter

The list of 78 titles, drawn from 122 official nominations, is presented annually at the ALA Midwinter Meeting. The books, recommended for those ages 12-18, meet the criteria of both good quality literature and appealing reading for teens.

In addition, the Great Graphic Novels for Teens Committee created a Top Ten list of titles that exemplify the quality and range of graphic novels appropriate for teen audiences, denoted by an asterisk.

 “The 2014 Great Graphic Novels for Teens list explores ancient Chinese rebellions, first love, modern day Uganda, futuristic scenarios, civil rights in America and everything in between.” said Chair Tessa Barber. “The graphic novels on this list are first rate in the marriage of storytelling and art and have appeal to a wide range of teen readers. The list is designed to be a resource for libraries and teens alike.”
