Confessions of a Blabbermouth

#44 in my 2007 book challenge was Confessions of a Blabbermouth from the DC Minx line of graphic novels. It’s written by Mike Carey and his 15yo daughter Louise, and illustrated by Aaron Alexovich.

Tasha Flanagan is a mildly rebellious teen blogger. Her mother starts to date a guy Tasha doesn’t like, and he has a daughter that she both likes and hates. Things get tense on a group vacation. Though dark things are hinted at, the reality is much more palatable. Tasha is funny and likeable. The art is manga-influenced, and suits the frenetic pace and mood of the book. Overall, though, this reads more like a book for pre-teens than a book for older teens and adults. It’s enjoyable and clever, but there’s not much depth.
