Category: Graphic Novel
Author: Hope Larson
Summary:Mercury combines both the past and the present in this parallel graphic story of a family.
Review:While the plot of this book was intriguing, teens may have difficulty telling the multitude of characters from both stories apart, making parts of the story hard to follow. As can be the case with graphic novels, some events were confusing, although in general, rereading corrected the issue. While graphic novels tend to appeal to boys, this one seems targeted toward girls, which could cause a lower circulation. I am not a particular fan of graphic novels; Mercury was somewhat interesting, but not the best of the genre I have read.
