Book Review: The Nameless City

Well done graphic novel. Basic plot allows more focus on character development and setting. Engaging and fast paced.

Set in a fictional city that has been conquered over and over again, two kids hit off an unlikely friendship. A young man trying to impress his father and a young girl full of street smarts discover their assumptions and prejudices may not always be correct.

The first in a series by Faith Erin Hicks, the novel leaves plenty of unexplored places both within the city and within each character's past. I recommend this book for middle school readers, especially those drawn to graphic novels and am looking forward to the rest of the series.
