Garage Band by Gipi: Read in September, 2009, copy purchased for my high school library
From Good Reads:
Four boys with turbulent home lives find refuge in the music they play together and in their friendship.When their only amp blows a fuse and the deadline to make their demo tape is pressing, they decide to steal in order to replace it. Events rapidly spiral out of control: will this be the end of everything the bands worked for?
I have to admit that this graphic novel by Gipi left me feeling “eh.” I didn’t hate Garage Band, but nothing really stuck out for me. I honestly don’t even really have much to say about it. The illustrations didn’t grab me either, but I think it is the style of them. The way the characters are drawn made me recall the illustrations in Harriet the Spy, which I always found creepy as a kid (loved the rest of the book, though). I do think there will be people who enjoy this, so take my opinion on it for what it is worth – not much at all.
