Jane, the Fox, and Me

Written by: Fanny Britt and Isabelle Arsenault

First line: There was no possibility of hiding anywhere today.

Why you should read this book: Helene is in the midst of that most middle-school of misadventures: for reasons she doesn't understand, all her former friends have cut her, so that so is completely lonely at school, where she is constantly subject to rude graffiti that makes untrue assertions about her weight. Her only respite is the novel Jane Eyre, but when the school decides to send her entire class to camp for four days, there is no escape. This fast and friendly graphic novel illustrates both the depths of despair and the heights of hope with love and accuracy.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're terrified of camping.
