Gr 7 Up–This graphic novel speaks to food lovers. Three senior girls begin school knowing it will be a year of last times. Nora, Lilli, and Iris all have different goals for their senior year. Iris is motivated to achieve good grades and extracurricular experiences for her college applications, Lili seems motivated to branch out and become a little more social, and Nora is motivated to enjoy every last minute of high school, without worrying about the future. In an effort to spend time with her friends, Nora creates Supper Club, where they will share good food and good times. Nora has high expectations for the members of Supper Club and models them with her own homemade treats and meals, showing she has a real talent for using food to create memories. Morrow excellently weaves nostalgic recipes in with true teenage problems as the school year progresses, and she throws in a little about mental health issues as well. With a message that everyone is dealing with something, the book successfully shows how, after a setback, things can get better with time. The illustrations are energetic and distinctive, showing off characters’ personalities without readers even needing their dialogue. As a bonus, recipes are included at the end. Readers who enjoyed Raina Telgemeier’s graphic novels will easily transition to Morrow’s teen drama.
VERDICT A solid choice for any middle or high school graphic novel collection.
