Hello everyone!!

Today I am really excited to share with you The Secret Garden on 81st Street: A Modern Retelling of the Secret Garden by Ivy Noelle Weir. It is a mddle-grade graphic novel and was published oNnOctober 19th by Little Brown & Company.

My Review

This is kind of a retelling for the Secret Garden but in a graphic novel form and brought to our times. 
It tackled serious issues such as anxiety and depression very good and managed to get through positive messages.
I also loved the illustrations

Rating: 4 Stars

Synopsis of the book:

The Secret Garden with a twist: in this follow-up to Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, this full-color graphic novel moves Mary Lennox to a New York City brownstone, where she and her very first group of friends restore an abandoned rooftop garden…and her uncle’s heart.

Looking for comfort in this strange, new reality, Mary discovers an abandoned rooftop garden and an even bigger secret…her cousin who suffers from anxiety. With the help of her new friends, Colin and Dickon, Mary works to restore the garden to its former glory while also learning to grieve, build real friendships, and grow.
