Graphic Novel Review of Page by Paige by Laura Lee Gulledge

Synopsis: "Paige Turner has just moved to New York with her family, and she's having some trouble adjusting to the big city. In the pages of her sketchbook, she tries to make sense of her new life, including trying out her secret identity: artist. As she makes friends and starts to explore the city, she slowly brings her secret identity out into the open, a process that is equal parts terrifying and rewarding.

Laura Lee Gulledge crafts stories and panels with images that are thought-provoking, funny, and emotionally resonant. Teens struggling to find their place can see themselves in Paige's honest, heartfelt story."

My Review: LOVE this Novel!! This may be my favorite Graphic Novel of the year. It reminds me of the Plain Janes but so much better! I loved Paige, she reminds me so much of myself and my own struggles to branch out and meet people, it is difficult to be an introvert sometimes. I loved her rules and will have to institute some of them into my own life, as well as some of her projects (I loved the easter eggs idea). The art in this novel was outstanding, it was all black and white but so impactful. Definitely get this one if you can!
My Rating: I am absolutely obsessed with this one! Can I use the paws from both critters and give it an eight paw rating?! Now that wouldn't be fair, so I will give it the highest rating possible here with Four Paws and a Stump Wag!

    1. This might have been one of my favorite GNs ever and I can't wait to use some of the ideas in my 'From the Book' posts!
