What is One City, One Book? It was designed to bring the community together through a common reading experience.

I will definitely look into it. What is the "One City,One Book" program?

Our city does a "One City, One Book" program and this year's book is "The Arrival" by Shaun Tan. This year's program will be introducing a lot of people to the graphic novel form. This book is the story of an immigrant coming to a new country unable to speak the language. Would love to get our teens at the local Boys & Girls Club to read it but I can't afford to buy enough copies for it be worthwhile as a program. This may be good for your age group too but I'm not exactly sure since I haven't "read" it myself.

Does any one have any suggestion of graphic novels for 5th and 6th graders? I know the Manga books are popular, but the ones I have seen are not okay for the younger kids. I don't have problems finding appropriate non-fiction graphic books, but can't find much fiction. I am not sure what to even look at.
