I spent some time on the porch this weekend, reading Lumberjanes and am so glad I did. It’s a great first volume of a comic, with funny lines, fantastic characters, and interesting unexpected events. One of the authors wrote Nimona, which is still in the running for the best book of 2016 for me.

Lumberjanes are a group of cabin mates at summer camp together, as it says, “for hard core lady types.” And through the adventures of these campers we learn of some secret evil doings. The “adults” in their lives are also wacky but lovable. And in the group of girls we see them taking care of each other, none of them fitting into any stereotype; they are smart, funny, interesting, and lovable.

Do you know a girl who needs something like this in her life? I highly recommend picking it up for her.
