YAQUI DELGADO WANTS TO KICK YOUR ASS: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL written by Meg Medina, graphic novel by Mel Valentine Vargas

 Ten years ago, I fell in love with Meg Medina’s YAQUI DELGADO WANTS TO KICK YOUR ASS. Now I’ve fallen in love all over again as Mel Valentine Vargas re-imagines Piddy’s story in graphic novel format. This new version has the same tension, page-turning quality, and the illustrations convey perfectly the overwhelming emotions that arise with Yaqui’s bullying. Piddy’s resilience still shines from these new pages. Note that sensitive subjects require a YA reader.
