Synopsis from Goodreads:
In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time. Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this smash-hit series about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
Set in the 1980’s, Paper Girls follows a group of four girls who deliver newspapers. Apart from a few people still roaming the streets in their Halloween costumes, it is a fairly normally morning. That is until the girls discover a weird machine in someone’s basement and come across two people who aren’t really people…
Paper Girls is a fast paced graphic novel that will have you flipping through the pages like a madman. The cliffhangers in this series are insane and you will be left wanting more! The colors in this series is very pretty and I would find myself stopping to stare and enjoy the beautiful artwork.
I honestly had no idea what I was going in to when I picked up this graphic novel. Paper Girls is technically the first graphic novel I have actually ever read. I have wanted to expand my genres and graphic novels have been something that have intrigued me for quite some time now. I cannot wait until this series starts back up again. If you are looking for an awesome graphic novel series to pick up, Paper Girls is the comic book for you!
