Review: The First Escape

The First Escape (The Dopple Ganger Chronicles)The First Escape by G.P. Taylor

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Even though I put this book in the graphic novel category, I'm not entirely sure it can be solely categorized this way. Taylor not only uses comic panels, but also traditional prose and illustrations to tell the story of three orphaned children. Saskia and Sadie are the troublemakers in their orphanage. For me, the transition between comic, illustration and prose was difficult, however, I can see this graphic novel as a gateway for some of my more reluctant readers (and those who are not really reluctant readers, but who don't like to read anything that's prose).
