The Never Weres by Fiona Smith
“I made a deal with my grand-niece: I’d read this if she read The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. It was my first graphic novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s set in the future. No babies have been born for fifteen years. Three smart, unique teenagers (two are girls) work on solving a mystery that involves each of their talents in different ways. It’s suspenseful, with plot twists that create a sophisticated story. A plot thread involving the elderly is touching but not sappy. I learned to attend to the graphic details that add to the richness of the narrative, and especially enjoyed those that refer to real books. I loved that despite their futuristic inventions (our technology is considered antique) the kids go to a library to get information.
