Great young adult book. I usually don't like graphic novels but enjoyed this one. The main plot is the challenges of putting on a high school musical and the drama that goes on behind the scenes. There are characters in the book that are homosexual, so this book will create a lot of discussion. Everything about it is spot on to current events for today's young adults. Cute story that made me want to read others by this author.

On the whole, "Guts" is a wonderful middle-grade story about dealing with anxiety, stress, and changes that I think many young readers in similar situations will be able to able to relate to. It's a very thoughtful book that I wish I had been able to read when I was younger! Telgemeier has this wonderful way of approaching topics in a realistic yet comforting manner that really makes the book feel like a welcoming space.
Two things held this book back a bit: first, even though "Guts" talks a LOT about dealing with bodily stresses head-on, it glosses right over any solid discussion on menstruation other than a stereotypical "Welp, that's puberty!" I thought this was weird considering that no other topic is shied away from. I just would have been nice to see a little better moment in that regard.
Secondly, there is a semi-offhand comment about another girl being the victim of verbal abuse from a drunk father than receives no attention at all. I understand that maybe this was something Telgemeier heard from a friend at a sleepover at this age, but for the purpose of this book, I think the issue needed to either be addressed in some way (even just an adult becoming aware of the situation) or cut out for narrative purposes. It's such a small moment but a young reader encountering it will just be left hanging completely.
All in all though, an enjoyable addition to the Smile series - I definitely plan to continue reading!

For some reason, I actually think a little bit is lost in the graphic novel, but that could just be me; I read the BSC series growing up and was super into it! The graphic novel is definitely a faithful to the original story, and is a fun read, but for me personally the charm will always be in the novels. :) Also, Telgemeier's backgrounds in here are incredibly bland? It just wasn't very enjoyable to look at as it could have been.

I always try to be aware of the intended audience for the book I'm reading- in this case, "Ghosts" is aimed at a middle school reading group. I've really tried to see this through the eyes of someone in that age range, because as a person in her twenties, I read this probably more critically than a 13 year-old would. And that's not to say it's bad; in fact, I thought it was quite the opposite.
"Ghosts" has a wonderful melancholy yet lovely design, a moving storyline, two young sisters with whom I fell in love, and a great heap of cultural and racial diversity. I really think Raina outdid herself this time. "Ghosts" has a deep message about life and death, and about breathing- both medically and figuratively.
The reason I mention keeping in mind the intended audience is because (again, as someone older) I thought Telemeigers backgrounds in her artwork in some places could use more attention. Additionally, I always want the characters to say JUST a little bit more. When Maya speaks about her concerns for Cat, I thought that conversation should have gone on for just another page or two.
Again, this things are fairly minor in the grand scheme of "Ghosts". It really is a beautiful little graphic novel, and I think readers of ANY age will be able to take something from it. I know I did.
