Guts is multiple Eisner Award-winner, Raina Telgemeier’s charming graphic memoir about her real-life battles with fear and anxiety. Fifth-grader Raina has a loving family, good friends and a passion for comics. As she’s sometimes nervous, self-conscious, shy and quiet, Raina’s also an easy target for teasing at school. Yet, this doesn’t explain her inexplicable stomach aches, increasingly frequent panic attacks, and newly developed fear of germs and food. What gives? Telgemeier’s expressive, candid and thoughtful illustrations show how our relatable and courageous heroine finally confronts and overcome her fears. A crowd-pleaser for all ages, Guts is particularly relevant for middle-graders.
