Grade 9 UpOn good days, Fanboy is invisible to the students at his high school On bad ones, he s a target for bullying and violence When a classmate is cruel to him, Fanboy adds him to The List and moves on His only real friend, Cal, is a jock who can t be seen with him in public Their love of comics, though, keeps them close friends outside of school Reading comics and writing his own graphic novel, Schemata, are the only things that keep him sane He dreams of showing his work to a famous author at a comic book convention and being discovered as the next great graphic novelist When Goth Girl Kyra IMs him with photos of him being beaten up, he s skeptical Why does she care what happens to him He learns, though, that she s as much an outsider as he is The two form a tentative friendship based on hatred of their classmates, particularly jocks, and her interest in Schemata Fanboy is a rule follower, but Kyra is a rebel with a foul mouth She teaches him to stand up for himself, and gives him the confidence to do it Lyga looks at how teens are pushed to their limits by society Though he toys with such concepts as teen suicide and Columbine like violence, the novel never turns tragic His love of comics carries over into all three teen characters, breathing animation into a potentially sad but often funny story This is a great bridge book for teens who already like graphic novels.Stephanie L Petruso, Anne Arundel County Public Library, Odenton, MD Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.I m a computer geek, a comic book geek, a study geek Even in the Fast Track classes, I m apart Fifteen year old Fanboy is miserable at school, where he is bullied, and at home, with his pregnant mother and her husband, the step fascist His only relief is the late hours spent creating his own comic book Then he receives an instant message from Kyra, an enigmatic Goth who seems to be the only witness to the violence he endures, and the two form a cagey, charged friendship Unlike Daniel Ehrenhaft s Drawing a Blank 2006 , in which a young comics fan embarks on a wild, fantastical adventure, Lyga s debut novel is a darkly comic, realistic, contemporary story of bullying and a teen s private escape in artistic pursuits Fanboy entertains plenty of violent thoughts He carries a bullet, keeps a tally of his abusers The List , and lashes out with sometimes cruel remarks, which feel sharply authentic The insider comics details will slow some readers, and the open ended questions about Kyra s personal story will frustrate others Yet Fanboy s whip smart, often hilariously sarcastic voice skillfully captures a teenager s growing self awareness, and adds a fresh, urgent perspective to age old questions about how young people cope with bullying and their own feelings of helplessness, rage, and being misunderstood as they try to discover themselves Gillian Engberg Copyright American Library Association All
