The Dark Matter of Mona Starr, by Laura Lee Gulledge, is a STELLAR book to consider for your choice reading library, book clubs, or even full class text. 

Here's why...

It takes on the issue of mental health and well-being in a positive, real way without being prescriptive or moralistic. 

It showcases healthy friendships and family communication.

It has INCREDIBLE art, art that goes beyond bringing the story to life and takes on a life of its own.

Listen in for my review, and be sure to sign up for Camp Creative, coming in June! In this totally free week of PD all about teaching graphic novels with confidence, you'll get...

  • My favorite titles, so you don't have to wait on hold for 30 graphic novels on Libby
  • A book tasting activity to help you introduce a range of (fabulous) graphic novels to your kiddos
  • Bright visual tools to make teaching graphic novel vocabulary easier than re-reading a Colleen Hoover novel
  • Creative activities you can use with ANY GRAPHIC NOVEL that bridge analysis of text and graphic elements
  • Done-for-you curriculum for launching a creative final project, without spending five hours in Canva prepping it 

In short, everything you need to teach your first graphic novel unit next year and smash it! Plus, a fun group of aspiring graphic novel gurus to move through the week with when you hop into our camp community.
