Description

Product Description

This contemporary middle-grade graphic novel about family and belonging from New York Times bestselling author Lucy Knisley is a perfect read for fans of Awkward and Be Prepared.

Jen is used to not getting what she wants. So suddenly moving the country and getting new stepsisters shouldn''t be too much of a surprise.


Jen did not want to leave the city. She did not want to move to a farm with her mom and her mom''s new boyfriend, Walter. She did not want to leave her friends and her dad.

Most of all, Jen did not want to get new "sisters," Andy and Reese.

As if learning new chores on Peapod Farm wasn''t hard enough, having to deal with perfect-at-everything Andy might be the last straw for Jen. Besides cleaning the chicken coop, trying to keep up with the customers at the local farmers'' market, and missing her old life, Jen has to deal with her own insecurities about this new family . . . and where she fits in.

New York Times bestselling author Lucy Knisley brings to life a story inspired from her own childhood in an amazing journey of unlikely friends, sisters, and home.

"Funny, sweet, and real." -Jennifer & Matthew Holm, co-creators of the bestselling Babymouse series

"This book is gorgeous. Highly recommended." -Kristen Gudsnuk, creator of Making Friends

This might be my favorite of Lucy Knisley’s books, and that’s huge, because I truly loved French Milk and Relish. In Stepping Stones, the reader experiences with Jen the avalanche of unfairness that kids are buried under when circumstances are completely out of their control, like their parents’ divorce, moving, or remarriage.

The book is just so well-written and beautiful, and I’m passing it on to my eight-year-old ASAP, because when you have BIG FEELINGS it helps to read about other kids with BIG FEELINGS.

A cute book with several nice moments! The artwork is really enjoyable. The story is just okay and feels a little underdeveloped. Some scenes fall flat because I thought they’d be about to go somewhere, or that there should have been a response to a character’s line, but then they’d just end. The actual conflict doesn’t even feel like it got that bad...it’s all kind of low-key. I was hoping that more would happen, and for more drama and nuance. And I thought it was weird that the mom wasn’t held accountable for the way she contributed to Jen’s treatment. I also vaguely felt that overall the characters, except the littlest one, were unlikeable.

Knisley’s nonfiction is excellent so hopefully her fiction will improve as she does more of it.

Lucy never fails to capture such heartwarming nostalgia. This book was so sweet and real and warm... I''m not ashamed to say that 28 year old me was so excited to read this book and counted down the days for its release as I do all her books... I''m still a kid at heart! This graphic novel definitely captured it... and pre-adolescent melodrama... beautifully.

O interesse na obra pode impulsionar o estudo do inglês.
