hanging out with boys

FRIENDS WITH BOYS by Faith Erin Hicks (First Second, February 2012, courtesy of NetGalley) combines the very realistic story of Maggie's first year in high school with a nifty ghost story. Maggie has been home schooled all her life. Her first day of high school is both exciting and terrifying at turns. It also means having friends outside of her rambunctious brothers to whom she is just one of the guys. Maggie manages to make some new friends and begins to see how different her brothers' lives are outside of their house. Add to this coming of age story, the story of the ghost who has followed, not exactly haunted, Maggie for years and the GN format, and you have a book certain to pull in a wide array of readers. <653>
