Loved, loved, loved this graphic novel. This is a story about trying to fit in in high school and find your place, something everyone can relate to. I really liked the relationship between all the siblings ...Maggie with her brothers...and Lucy and Alistair...it is nice to see a book where siblings are looking out for each other. This is a Young Adult graphic but I would definitely recommend it for middle school (there is no sex and a minimal amount of bad language.)

A coming-of-age tale with a spooky twist!
Maggie McKay hardly knows what to do with herself. After an idyllic
childhood of homeschooling with her mother and rough-housing with her older
brothers, it’s time for Maggie to face the outside world, all on her own. But
that means facing high school first. And it also means solving the mystery of
the melancholy ghost who has silently followed Maggie throughout her entire
life. Maybe it even means making a new friend—one who isn’t one of her brothers.
Funny, surprising, and tender, Friends with Boys is a pitch
perfect YA graphic novel full of spooky supernatural fun.
