Chiggers by Hope Larson
A while back I read Mercury by Hope Larson and really liked it. I've been trying to beef up the collection of graphic novels in my classroom library, so I picked this one up. It was pretty good. I most enjoyed the fact that it was about camp. I loved reading about the camp atmosphere and activities. Bunk life is crazy, and it was fun to be reminded of old times at summer camp. I thought that the characters were cool, but overall it was just ok for me. I wasn't terribly moved by the story at all. I will add it to my collection, but will probably recommend Mercury first.
