Wdebo's Review: I am not the biggest fan of graphic novels, but I find them intriguing so I was interested to read the Alison Dare series, because I wanted to try out a different genre. Though they were not my favorite books ever (and that might be because the age group was a bit below me) I thought they were kinda of interesting and entertaining. The drawings were pretty good, but I am still not that used to it, and I perfer mangas more. I thought, however, that Alison's life seemed WAY too perfect, but I guess that always works for middle grade books. There were however some good action scenes, especially for a middle grade book!

Cafe Cover Chat: Not the best, but it fits the stories (B-)

All in all, a good graphic novel for younger readers + more reluctant readers, there are some good action if you like that. :)

Grade: B-
