Surfing has never been a subject I cared to know anything about but this beautiful cover called out to me. Not only did I absolutely love learning about the history of surfing but the interweaving of the history with AJ’s personal story left me stunned. This book will warm your heart while simultaneously breaking it. This is definitely a book for both new and experienced graphic novel readers.
The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers
by Maxwell King
Submitted by Molly J.
The Good Neighbor is the first full-length biography of Fred Rogers and is a very comprehensive account. The account starts from his childhood through his death using interviews, oral histories, and other primary sources. The book will make you appreciate what Mr. Rogers has done for childhood development and modern television.
What a great story! I absolutely fell in love with the book’s central characters and how they form the most unlikely of friendships as they traverse the injustices forged upon them. The time and place is South Carolina, circa 1924, written so vividly with such an appeal to the senses. With a compelling and suspenseful storyline, I’d say this book is as least as good as Stockett’s The Help, and Sue Monk Kidd’s The Invention of Wings. I’d also go so far as to say its appeal is on par with Where the Crawdad Sings. If you liked those books, I’d wager you’re going to enjoy this one. I particularly enjoyed the audiobook, with three actors portraying the parts of Retta, Gertie and Annie. A winner!
