Johnny Graphic Reviewed on Reads 4 Tweens

Yesterday I heard from Amanda at Reads 4 Tweens that she had done a feature review of Johnny Graphic on her website. It’s a thorough, thoughtful overview of my story, and I’m really impressed by the attention she gave it and the detail she went into. Thanks, Amanda! Here are a couple of excerpts from her comments:

“This pulp adventure, with ghosts and zombies and flying boats, is quick paced and engaging. It reminds me a bit of Dinocalypse Now in tone—clever and action packed—although with its young protagonists it’s more explicitly aimed at the middle grade set.”

“The nonstop action and off-kilter but still familiar world make for an engaging read. Although I get a slightly ‘boy book’ vibe from it, it’s full of proactive female characters, too. The plight of the ghosts adds depth to it—I hope that most readers will go from finding them spooky and sometimes funny to feeling sympathy for the difficult situation they’re in. It opens the door to a lot of conversations about any group of people that’s marginalized.”
