'Lisa and the Lacemaker' by Kathy Hoopmann with illustrations by Mike Medaglia is a comic book with a mystery. It will also subtly teach you about Asperger's as you learn about the main character.
Lisa doesn't like parties, but her mom makes her go to her grandmother's party. She ends up outside and meets an aunt who also doesn't like parties. On her way home from the party, she visits her friend Ben and while she is there, she finds an abandoned house on the property. Little does she know, but this house and her aunt share a history.
The story is a fun read. Lisa has an imagination that runs wild, but she's intelligent. When she gets in trouble, she doesn't make eye contact. But she is a sweet girl and has a big heart. I liked the illustrations, and I liked getting to know Lisa.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Jessica Kingsley Publishers and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
