I, Witness by Norah McClintock (writer) and Mike Deas (artist)

3055656When his best friend Robbie stumbles across a murder, Boone warns him not to tell anyone.  It is only days later that Robbie is gunned down in front of Boone.  Stuck in the same dilemma as his dead friend, Boone struggles with his own advice to honor the street code of staying silent.

This heavy black and white graphic novel uses negative space masterfully. The story itself can be relatable to those who live by street rules, only sometimes doing the right thing is the hardest and scariest decision.  This is definitely a page turner.

Recommended for high school (mild language and graphic violence).
