Black is for Beginnings, by Laurie Faria Stolarz

blackThe fifth book of this series is a graphic novel. Stacey is dealing with relationship issues (won’t say anything further as I don’t want to spoil earlier books) and also dreaming about a little girl she once knew a long time ago. She’s confused about everything in her life, and her friends are trying to help her come to terms with everything.

I must admit I was a little disappointed with this GN. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t enough. A good half of the book was spent recapping the other four books in the series, and most of the rest was backstory. Of course, I’m still happy that I read it and that I will soon have my own copy of it. It was wonderful to see all these characters in visual form. They looked exactly as I imagined them and I felt like I understood them better seeing them outside my own head. This book makes me want to go back and reread the series already! But honestly, I just wish there was more here. I want another whole book, not a piece of one, which is more like what Black is for Beginnings felt like. All I can say is that I hope hope hope that there are more of these books coming!

Book 1: Blue is for Nightmares
Book 2: White is for Magic
Book 3: Silver is for Secrets
Book 4: Red is for Remembrance
