Review: I Survived. The Graphic Novel

I Survived Book Cover

I have a confession to make. I have not read any of the I Survived series. In fact, for a very long time, I resisted buying them for my library, because I thought they were young a little young for middle school. But I caved due to the number of students asking if we had the series. If they asked for it, I thought it would be a good idea to have it. Today, there are many joyous faces when the students find a copy on the library shelves. So when I heard there was a graphic novel adaptation and then got my very own preview, I was thrilled to get a taste of the book.
