Convince us to read the book: The graphic novel format is interesting because this book proves to be quite a fast read. The first person narration is useful and the pictures provide some humor as well.

Cover: The cover was tempting because of its uniqueness, but the title was what drew me into reading the book. Both reflected the contents.

AnnotationAs the title states, this book is about a tomboy. As she grows up, Liz realizes she isn't like other girls. Instead of princesses, she plays with Ghostbusters toys and she hates dresses. Yet she isn't quite like the boys either...
