X-Men: Misfits by Raina Telgemeier

This book is about a girl named Kitty Pryde who has been tying to keep the fact that she's a mutant. She eventually finds out about and attends a school for other kids like her called Xavier. She thought that attending a school where the kids are like her would make her feel like less of an outcast. She turns out to be wrong. She soon finds out that she's the only girl attending school there. This causes many complications through out the book.

I was disappointed in this book because of a few reasons. The first reason is that it's a graphic novel. Another reason is that it's completely different from the x-men origins movies, which I really like. The characters aren't even in the movie. It also doesn't have a lot of reading to it. It's mostly pictures. I also found the way it was written confusing. It seemed like you had to look at the pictures to understand what was going on, but it still didn't always make sense.
