Jimmy Gownley – The Dumbest Idea Ever!
Dave Roman – Astronaut Academy: Re-entry
Raina Telgemeier – Sisters

Three graphic novels for younger teens focus on the struggles and relationships of school and family. The long-awaited companion to Telgemeier’s perpetually bestselling, Eisner Award winning graphic memoir Smile focuses on Raina’s relationship with her sister. The kids (and cyborgs) are back for another school year at Roman’s Astronaut Academy, playing fireball (go Chibi Sesame Seeds!) and giving their hearts away to their crushes (although sometimes the hearts get eaten). Gownley, creator of the Amelia Rules series, shares the tensions and triumphs of his own teen years, when he began self-publishing comics and met with a brief flush of fame, in his graphic memoir. Ages 11 – 14
