This is a true tale of a tragic childhood, from the worst occurrences and vivid imagery. David Small is known for his children's stories, but he truly did wonders with his graphic memoir. You would not think a story like this would be in the graphic novel section, but without the imagery Small gives the audience, you can’t truly comprehend the intensity of this memoir and powerful depictions it portrays without it. - Krysten
One of the perks of working in a bookstore is the privilege of reading books long before they're published. Because of this, our staff has read advance copies of books that went on to become mega-bestsellers — titles like Twilight, The Fault in Our Stars, The Hunger Games and many others — all before they reached the general public's radar.
Interested in reading books before they're published? If you're between the ages of 12 and 17, consider joining B.I.T. (Before It's Trendy). You'll get access to advance reading copies, and in return write brief recommendations for books you love. If your recommendation is published, not only will it be placed in our teen section and around the bookstore, but you'll also receive Changing Hands trade credit!
So what's the catch? We have a limited number of books, and therefore a limited number of spots. Stop by Changing Hands to pick up an application today. (Applications must include a 100-word review of your favorite book.)
