Cecil Castellucci, Allan Stratton
When you’re a teenager, it’s normal to think your family just doesn’t understand you. And that’s when books can help. Good fiction allows teens to get inside the head of someone else, perhaps facing the kinds of problems they are, perhaps feeling just as misunderstood too. These two authors have created such stories. Cecil Castellucci’s graphic novel, set in 1932, shows how a teen sets out on a train-hopping journey to escape her abusive father. She finds safety disguised as a boy and friendship with a hobo. Allan Stratton’s modern-day teen feels betrayed by her parents when they’re quick to believe the lies circulating about her at school. When you’re a teen, it helps to know you’re not the only one with problems.
