**Thanks so much to the publisher for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review!**
As of recently, I've been really into graphic novels. There's just something about them that makes them so incredibly fun to read!
Paper Girls follows the story of some 12-year-old girls in the 1980's, all of whom deliver papers. The story begins with a girl named Erin who is very new to the job. She runs into another group of girls who also deliver newspapers while she's being attacked by older guys. She's with these girls when she finds out that her town is not the same town that she thought she was in.
To start off, I thought I'd talk about the artwork. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. It was so pretty to look at! I really liked how it looked slightly cartoony but realistic at the same time. I also really liked the colors. They were very bright just like the 1980's themselves. It really adds to the story overall.
The story itself was very interesting. I thought the pacing was great and I never found myself bored, especially because I was so fascinated with the artwork. I also loved the idea of a whole town disappearing and creepy aliens showing up. It was just so intriguing!
I know for sure that I'll be picking up the next installment of this new series!
