Graphic novels are popular and if we may, are considered a serious form of reading. Taking the reader through the journey of the protagonist through minimal texts and a graphic format, these novels are popular time and again and make it to the front rows of every bookstore or library. 

This year, Scholastic India has released this graphic novel by author Debasmita Dasgupta, that aptly describes itself as a 'quiet but gloriously drawn graphic novel for kids" and it is winning the hearts of book lovers and parents alike.

About the book: 

The book we are talking about today is Nadya- a graphical novel by Debasmita Dasgupta that is suitable for your kids 12 years and above. The narrative is pretty simple. It talks about the life and journey of little Miss Nadya, the things she likes to do and what happens when there is an unwelcome change in her life.  

There aren't a lot of Indian books that touch upon the serious subjects of divorce and separation and the impact it has on the kids. Nadya treads on this serious path carefully, albeit with engaging illustrations that talk about divorce, not as a primary topic but as a part of the process. The book follows Nadya's journey, riddled with confusions and the pain of loss and separation.
