A First Time for Everything

We rated this book:


Dan Santat’s graphic novel, A First Time for Everything, is about his first school trip to Europe as a teenager. Middle school is tough when he’s dealing with lots of bullies and embarrassing situations. The bullying at school has affected his self-confidence. And now he has to travel to Europe with some of the same bullies. Will the bullies ruin this once-in-a-lifetime trip to Europe?

I really liked this graphic novel. The graphic novel was so interesting, funny, fun, and sad at the same time. It was so fun reading about his time in Europe. I can’t believe he was able to run around Europe with the other kids without any adults or teachers. I can’t believe all that stuff happened to him. The girls and some of the other kids at his school are so mean. I’m glad the trip was fun and memorable for him.

Reading the book made me want to go to Europe and to drink Fanta. I highly recommend this book to any reader who loves a fun and exciting story or anyone who likes to travel.
