I finally read this as a graphic novel after reading it many years ago when it was being posted online as a webcomic. I remember liking it then but I'd forgotten a lot of the plot. I still really like it. Hicks' art style is just great, I love how different all the characters look. I really like this little vignette of high school life for Maggie, with all the heroes and villains of teen life. Plus, ghosts! I love magic realism. ( )

This graphic novel has tons of heart. I loved the relationship that Maggie had with her brothers and the new friendships she made at school. I felt like the author did a really good job of conveying those emotions and bringing Maggie's feelings and fears to the forefront. I also thought the characters were very beautifully drawn. A number of times I caught myself just looking at the pictures and not even reading anything. I was just looking at Maggie's eyes and how beautiful and expressive they were. This is definitely worth a read. ( )

Pretty art. Easy to read, with a deceptively simple story.

The title bothers me in how it focuses the brothers and their boy friends while the girls drive most of the plot. ( )

This was an interesting YA graphic novel. The artwork is pretty decent. Basically Maggie's mom left and previously she was homeschooled. Now she is starting school and a ghost keeps following her around. She makes some friends and somehow try to get her twin brothers not to kill each other. Okay ending but overall good story. ( )

Can I please proclaim my love for Friends With Boys? It has been a long while since I had the pleasure of diving into a graphic novel, and so I'm happy to say that Faith Erin Hicks satisfied my every bookish need. What you'll find between these pages is the perfect mixture of sweet, spooky, and downright funny. New to the world of graphic novels? This is a great place to start!

What impressed me most about this story was the characters. They easily steal the show. Faith Erin Hicks brings to life a quirky family who I would be happy to meet in real life. Maggie is the youngest of four and all her siblings are, you guessed it, boys! Maggie's character is sweet and shy. Her brothers are all kind, boisterous characters who shine off the page. Their love for one another is evident, even as they have their normal sibling rivalries. Lucy and her brother Alistair are also deliciously different and realistic. There isn't a single character who outshines the others, and I adored that fact.

Faith Erin Hicks shows her prowess at creating emotion without words in Friends With Boys. With the use of gorgeously rendered facial expressions, Hicks allows the reader a glimpse at Maggie's emotions without blatantly spelling them out. This also allows the chance for a lot of open ended situations! There is a lot in this story that can be interpreted many different ways. I'm anxious to see if this will be a series, in huge part because there is so much that I still want to know.

There is a very mild supernatural element to this story. Mild enough that it doesn't overpower the story, but still present enough that it gives it a nice twist. If you are not one to read paranormal, fret not! The story line of this graphic novel contains much more than ghost stories. Friends With Boys is about growing up, finding out who you really want to be, and also the power of a loving family. In fact, there is so much to love here that I devoured this graphic novel in a mere half hour! Let's be honest, it's that good.

My one gripe? The ending! Ah. I won't spoil, but it definitely leaves a lot of things unanswered, which made me chomp at the bit for more. I'm in for the long haul. Maggie and her crew are welcome on my reading list any time! ( )
