The Supernaturalist

Colfer, Eoin. The Supernaturalist. Disney-Hyperion, 2012. 

This is a graphic novel version of a novel by the same name. Cosmo Hill is an orphan and he lives in an orphanage that makes ends meet by using the orphans as test subjects for various products. When he finally escapes the orphanage, Cosmo meets up with a group called the Supernaturalists, people who also see the parasites that feed on human beings. Soon the mystery deepens, however, and Cosmo has to race to save his own skin and that of his friends.

My students enjoy this book along with the other "novels made into graphic novels" that I have in our library's collection. I think this particular version is especially well done and does justice to the story told.

Recommended for: teens, tweens
Red Flags: violence
Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
