Real Friends Written by Shannon Hale, Illustrated by LeUyen Pham

Hi everyone! I have a really good recommendation for you today! So, who here likes graphic novels?

Last week I started reading this graphic novel called Real Friends. It is written by Shannon Hale, and illustrated, by LeUyen Pham. Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham have worked together (along with Dean Hale) on the Princess in Black series. I think that it is really cool that they worked on Real Friends together, too!

I love this graphic novel, and since about a week ago, I have already read it 6 times!

Real Friends is a “sort-of memoir” as I like to call it, because it is based off of true events that happened to Shannon Hale in her childhood, but is not 100% accurate. Some events were altered slightly, some people’s names were changed, and of course, some parts might not have been remembered exactly how it happened. Because, after all, it’s all about perspective...
