Svetlana Chmakova's AWKWARD was an instant hit with middle grade readers in 2015, being named one of YALSA's Top Ten Great Graphic Novels for Teens 2016 and earning an Eisner nomination in the Best Publications for Teens category. Now Chmakova returns to the halls of Berrybrook Middle School, hot on the heels of this success, with BRAVE!
Still on high alert about the looming threat of sunspots, Jensen of the art club reaches out to the school newspaper to spread his message. But when Jenny and Akilah discover that Berrybrook's resident bullies have set their sights on Jensen, the girls are determined to use their positions on the school paper to shine a light on the issue.
When a different incident causes a rift in their friendship, though, working together for the sake of the story may be impossible...As the bullying escalates, will Jensen be left to face this fate worse than sunspots entirely on his own??
The charming world of Berrybrook Middle School gets a little bigger in this follow-up to Svetlana Chmakova's AWKWARD.
