Graphic Novel of the Month Club!
This month we're reading:
Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke
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 “Zita the Spacegirl” by Ben Hatke, the author of Mighty Jack and contributor to the Explorer and Comics Squad series.
When her best friend is abducted by an alien doomsday cult, Zita leaps to the rescue and finds herself a stranger on a strange planet. Humanoid chickens and neurotic robots are shocking enough as new experiences go, but Zita is even more surprised to find herself taking on the role of intergalactic hero. Before long, aliens in all shapes and sizes don't even phase her. Neither do ancient prophecies, doomed planets, or even a friendly con man who takes a mysterious interest in Zita's quest.
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!
