  1. Hello. I am a big fan. I have been a K-12 teacher, and am now a professor helping to prepare new teachers. I am co-designing a new course for this fall and we are talking about the importance of adult relationships during a child’s development. We are having the students read “Because of Mr. Terupt” (maybe you know it) which is a YA novel. I would like the students to have a choice of an alternative that will a) be a comic or graphic novel, and b) be more diverse. Do you have any suggestions?

    1. Hey, Bryan! Sorry it took me a minute to get back to you. This school year has been crazy as you know. Do you still need help?
