The Big Break by Mark Tatulli
Due out March 2020
Last year my cousins and I went camping. We left the adults at the campsite by the fire and went exploring. First we crossed a tilted bridge. Then we took a grown in path into the woods. We saw some geckos and salamanders. After we finished the path, we popped out into the other end of our campground. It was an adventure.
Russ and Andrew, the two main characters of The Big Break, also like adventures. In this graphic novel, they like to go monster hunting after school. They are searching for the Jersey Devil. But as the hunt goes on and they can't find it, Russ gets angry at Andrew. Russ starts to think monsters aren't real and this whole thing is stupid. Will the boys find the monster and become friends again?
I thought this was a great book because in real life it's normal to get angry at your friends. It's worth it to work through the aggravation of disagreements. I read this book in two days and it was hard to put down. I would read it every morning and night. I would rate this book five stars!
