Book Trailer Thursday: REAL FRIENDS by Shannon Hale

Childhood friendships can sometimes be bumpy rides—something that Shannon Hale explores in her new graphic memoir, Real Friends. Young Shannon can’t quite determine who is actually her friend and who isn’t, and she is constantly worrying about what her peers think of her. Hale’s story is punctuated by colorful illustrations from LeUyen Pham, previewed in this book trailer. As Sarah Hunter describes in her Booklist review, Real Friends is “A wistful, affecting, and utterly charming exploration of the realities of childhood friendship.” Anyone who is a fan of Raina Telgemeier will be sure to love this latest story from Shannon Hale!
