The outside circle

Title: The outside circle
By: Patti Laboucane-Benson

The Outside Circle is, simply put, amazing. It has what you'd expect of a great graphic novel—a wonderful story and lovely art—but what makes it stand out for me, someone who reads at least 2-3 graphic novels a week, is how it made me feel. All good graphic novels make you feel connected to the story, but this one was SO relatable on the emotional level, it resonated with my soul. The relationship dynamics, the descriptions of how people react and feel… they're so accurate, so true to being human, I sat in the break room at work during lunch, reading this story, and allowed myself to cry. My coworkers kept asking me if I was ok, and I kept saying, "This graphic novel is just SO good. I'm all right, this is the good kind of crying." I think that everyone who reads this will have to make the same explanation to anyone who sees them. It's that good.
