Claire and her family move away from the city to start up a bakery in the country. Unfortunately, Claire's mother goes missing suddenly. It is up to Claire to find her mother and bring her home. The protagonist was a strong female lead with a big imagination and wit. If I were a child reading this book, I would have enjoyed her journal entries the most because they would have allowed me to feel a closer connection to the main character. The novel often seemed to push an agenda about eating organic, non-GMO food, which I didn't expect to read about in a children's graphic novel. The constant push for organic food may have been informative, but it also tittered on the line of snobby. The book illustrated a divorced family, which provided diversity that I think made this book appealing. The bravery and cleverness of Claire also makes this book appealing for readers who enjoy adventures and mysteries, although I had wished it was marketed more for both genders. The size of the book just small enough to carry around in around in a large jacket pocket, which is very convenient. Also, the pictures were simple and bright, and I was happy to see that there was a variety in warm colors, rather than just pink. ( )

I haven't read too many graphic novels, but I thought this one was pretty good. It was a regular story just told in 'graphic' form.
I would use this to show my students that there are other types of graphic novels besides Marvel superhero based ones.
