Picture book: THE STORY ABOUT PING by Marjorie Flack, illustrated by Kurt Wiese. A classic, and a real favorite from my childhood.
Middle grade: EL DEAFO by Cece Bell. A graphic memoir with so much heart.
Young adult: SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson. Wonderfully written and intense.
Adult Fiction: UNDER THE SKIN by Michel Faber (or really any of his other books). His writing is phenomenal and I love everything he’s written!
Adult NF: PERSEPOLIS: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi. One of the first graphic memoirs I ever read and the illustrations and story were unforgettable.
