New Books for Teens 1/15/2010

Children of the Sea by Daisuke Igarashi–This looks an interesting graphic novel, but I am having trouble understanding what it’s all about.  Basically there is a girl who visits an aquarium where her father is employed.  When she enters she can hear a call to the sea.  She meets two boys that experience the same thing.  So they are drawn to the sea, but there is also a mystery to solve involving some disappearing ocean creatures.  The visuals are good.  Maybe something different to try?

Also Melody Carlson has come out with a new novel in  her Notes from a Spinning Planet series that takes place in Mexico.  I think it involves the same characters as her Ireland book.  Carlson writes the popular True Colors and Diary of a Teenage Girl series.  Carlson writes inspirational fiction in a non-preachy way that is attractive to all readers.
