Graphic Novel of the Month Club!
This month we're reading:
Gotham Academy #1 - Calamity
by Becky Cloonan, Brenden Fletcher, and Karl Kerschl
Every month we select a new title that you'll love! We'll have a teaser during the month, and then we'll meet at the end of the month to take a closer look. This month we’ll be reading “Calamity,” the second book in the Gotham Academy series by Becky Cloonan, Brenden Fletcher, and Karl Kerschl.
At the beginning of the term, Olive Silverlock returned to Gotham Academy a shadow of her former self. But thanks to her new friendships and their Detective Club sleuthing, Olive was finally starting to feel whole again.
Then, abruptly, Olive’s mother died—or, she seemed to. In the weeks after the funeral, Olive begins seeing her mother around the school. An Arkham Asylum patient with a deadly dark side, Sybil Silverlock was a powerful and complicated woman. Could her spirit be reaching out from beyond the grave? And if so, is it motherly Sybil who haunts Olive—or her deadly alter ego Calamity?
Books are selected for readers age 8-18, and may contain some PG violence or language. Books will be on the YA Balcony as soon as they're available!
