Shiny Misfits, by Maysoon Zayid, illustrated by Shadia Amin, is an excellent graphic novel about friendship, coping, and being yourself. Shiny Misfits is about a girl named Bay Ann with cerebral palsy, a disability that reduces mobility and body control, hunting for the spotlight. Bay Ann copes with her disability as she tries to conquer her competitor, prove her worth, and rule the World Wide Web.

A wonderful character, Bay Ann shines through providing humor in every page and showing you don’t have to be perfect to succeed. Well drawn, the imagery displays the character’s feelings perfectly. This is a good book for preteen and tween-aged children who like emotional graphic novels that may relate to their own lives. Homes and libraries should buy this book.
