Snapdragon ~ Kat Leyh

Snapdragon

Rating: 5/5

Definitely at the top of my list for best graphic novels I’ve read thus far, Leyh’s Snapdragon is smart, humble, and deeply emotional. Snap spends a lot of time on her own, and she likes it that way. She’s tough, and can stand up for herself. So when her dog goes missing with the local town witch, she gets herself psyched up to go rescue him. She confronts the witch, only to find that she’s not a witch at all, just an old lady who buries roadkill and sells the skeletons online.

When she finds a bunch of orphaned baby possums at school, she knows just who to go to for help. Jacks accepts, as long as Snap will participate in a work trade. So ensues this odd and endearing friendship between the lonely old witch and a lonely little girl. Along the way, they both find their people and a renewed sense of purpose. Leyh packs so much into this graphic novel in such a short amount of time. What’s wonderful about this read is how inclusive (without trying hard) and unique of a story it is, and definitely a good read for any age.
