9780141348513: Beautiful Creatures: The Manga (A Graphic Novel)

Winner of the 2013 Goodreads Choice Award for Graphic Novels & Comics!
There were no surprises in Gatlin County.
We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere.

At least, that's what I thought.
Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong.
There was a curse.
There was a girl.
And in the end, there was a grave.

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

About the Author:

Kami Garcia is a teacher and reading specialist with an MA in education, and leads book groups for children and teenagers. Margaret Stohl has an MA in English and studied creative writing under poet George MacBeth at the University of East Anglia, Norwich. They both live in Los Angeles, California, with their families. Beautiful Creatures is their debut novel.

From Booklist:

Ethan’s only excitement in the small town of Gatlin, South Carolina, comes from the dreams he keeps having about a mysterious girl. But when that girl, Lena, shows up in school, Ethan learns that there are people with dangerous powers living in his town and that he may have a part to play in Lena’s tortured destiny. This adaptation of Garcia and Stohl’s novel is to the point, but it lacks much of the lush descriptiveness of the original. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough pages in the graphic novel to allow for vibrant images to take the place of those prose passages, so readers who only pick up the comic will miss out on some elements. Jean’s illustrations do their admirable best, however. Readers will be pleased that Ethan, Lena, and their friends look like actual teenagers, with Lena’s gravity-defying hair signifying her otherworldly nature. The mental communication between Ethan and Lena shines through strongly and helps solidify their relationship despite the sometimes choppy abridgment of the story. Overall, a worthy purchase where the novel series is popular. Grades 8-12. --Snow Wildsmith
