Graphic Novel!

I've been skimming but not really commenting on these posts because I don't really find the "here is a stream of consciousness list of all the things I thought about ____ book" to be conducive to starting conversation. It's kind of too much for me to just see the walls of text and not know where to jump in to the conversation. It's easier for me to have say, here is a thread about Claudia and Janine's relationship, here is the thread on how Mimi made me sad, here is the thread about the B plot instead of having it all jumbled in all over the place.

But anyway, Claudia and Mean Janine is one of my faves, though, so I figured I'd be remiss if I didn't at least try to participate a little!

I'm re-reading the graphic novel, and I love how much Raina is able to communicate about the tension that's still there between Dawn and Kristy just using their facial expressions and body language. (Or more specifically, Kristy's deal with feeling jealous about Dawn and her growing friendship with MA.) It's one of the little things that I love about the graphic novel versions of these books. It adds another dimension to stories I've already read over and over many times.
