Zita the Spacegirl, a graphic novel by Ben Hatke
I first read about this book in Mater et Magistra, a homeschooling magazine, months ago. When I saw Zita again at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, I moved it to the top of my list. I'm so glad I did.
We all loved this exciting story of Zita who courageously follows her friend into an interplanetary wormhole after he is kidnapped due to her rash actions. Her kindness, friendship, and bravery earn her new friends as they persevere in an impossible quest. It's wonderful! I'm sorry our library does not have the second volume, but I am hoping we can acquire both of them for our very own.
