Teen Titans: Raven

Starting over isn't easy. Raven remembers how to solve math equations and make pasta, but she can't remember her favorite song or who she was before the accident. When strange things start happening--impossible things--Raven starts to think it might be better not to know who she was in her previous life.

But as she grows closer to her foster sister, Max, her new friends, and Tommy Torres, a guy who accepts her for who she is now, Raven has to decide if she's ready to face what's buried in the past...and the darkness building inside her.

I absolutely loved this origin story! Graphic novels are such a perfect way to hook reluctant readers in the classroom, and anything to do with superheroes flies off my shelves. This origin story of Raven is perfect to get into the hands of readers who love the hero's journey, anything to do with superheroes, girls who think graphic novels aren't for them, and so many more!

I'm actually pretty bummed that we no longer teach mythology in my grade level in my district - this would have been the PERFECT companion book to our discussions of the hero's journey. I'm getting a few copies for my classroom library for sure - this is one that will always be checked out!

For My Middle Schoolers:
Don't even worry about it - I will have several copies ready for you to check out when we get back to school!

For My High Schoolers:
This is the perfect book to tote around to all those family gatherings you don't want to attend this summer!
