From Far Away by Kyoko Hikawa

Reviewed by Jená Holder, an 11th grader at Frederick Douglass

Noriko Tachiki, a normal high school student, falls into a different world, where humans and mystical beings lay.  When Noriko wakes she is met with a mysterious man named Izark from there the adventure begins.  This story is very captivating in its characters and how much meaning was put into each of them; what I liked most was how Izark, who had not really known love and warmth of a family, was changed by Norkio who at the beginning seemed to only be a burden to him.  The supporting characters like the aunt were funny though the ending could have been better where instead of having her father write about her being missing, she could have had the option of going to and from.  It's a very easy story to get into if you like odd creatures and half-demon people.  The storyline is simple and short anyone should enjoy it.

Nana by Ai Yazawa

Reviewed by Jasime Harris, an 11th grader at Frederick Douglass

It is a very interesting and comical manga with great twist and turns.  Two girls with the same age, name and intentions for traveling to Tokyo, Japan.  I recommend it to those who love drama and super plot twists.  I would love to continue the manga as theycan so send out each book.
