Swing It, Sunny!

swing itToday I recommend: Swing It, Sunny! by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm.

In the mid-1970s Sunny Lewin is back, star of her personal show, facing the prospect of Middle School, and dealing with the problems of her somewhat dysfunctional family–in particular her older brother, Dale, who has been sent off to a military academy because of his delinquent behavior.

This is the sequel to the graphic novel, Sunny Side Up, and it picks up right where the first one left off. Sunny is now back at home and is still struggling to deal with her brother’s anger, and the stress that her family is under. The artwork while mostly bright and cartoony turns darker when Sunny is facing her fears about her brother. While mostly upbeat the graphic novel does tackle serious ideas such as guilt and anxiety. This is great for fans of Raina Telgemeier and anyone who enjoyed Sunny Side Up.

You can find this graphic novel in the Juvenile Graphic Novel section at J GRAPHIC HOLM.
