One trend I have noticed recently is graphic novel adaptations of novels. Purchasing these titles will allow another group of students to access these novels. Many of my special education students and struggling readers want to read the popular, but difficult novels yet they are limited by their reading disabilities. Graphic novel versions of these novels remove those obstacles. In some cases the graphic novel version will make an old title new again. One of my favorites, The Girl Who Owned a City, released a graphic novel version and renewed student interest in the title.
Here are a few I recommend.
