First jobs are especially memorable, and this charming graphic novel portrays the joys of an entry-level job. Author Jennifer L. Holm and illustrator Matthew Holm focus on the pleasures of a summer job: new friends, budding romances, and earning money. Sunny matures over the course of the summer, becoming interested in one "sweet" boy, learning to navigate between the attitudes of her mother and her grandfather, and daring to try new scary things. The stakes are low, but Sunny is such a genuinely nice kid that readers can't help but root for her.
