This week I have:

Alexander Altmann cover

Alexander Altmann A10567 by Suzy Zail

“Don’t let her know you’re scared,” Alexander’s father had said to him the first time Alexander had sat on Sari’s back.
Fourteen-year-old Alexander Altmann doesn’t need to look at the number tattooed on his arm. A10567; he knows it by heart. He also knows to survive Auschwitz, he must toughen up. Being soft will get him killed. Alexander will take any chance he’s given – and when that chance is caring for the German officers’ horses he grabs it. He just can’t let them know he’s scared.

I’ve read and enjoyed Zail’s The Wrong Boy, so I’m looking forward to this one.

 

Nukkin Ya cover

Another sequel, Nukkin Ya by Phillip Gwynne:

Nukkin Ya is the sequel to Deadly, Unna?. Fifteen-year-old Gary Black, ‘Blacky’, isn’t sure what he wants or where he is going. The one thing he does know is that he wants to escape the small country town he’s grown up in.

What Did You Eat Yesterday - Cover

And lastly, a graphic novel, What Did You Eat Yesterday? by Fumi Yoshinaga:

From award-winning author Fumi Yoshinaga comes a casual romance between two middle-aged men and the many meals they share together.
A hard-working middle-aged gay couple in Tokyo come to enjoy the finer moments of life through food. After long days at work, either in the law firm or the hair salon, Shiro and Kenji will always have down time together by the dinner table, where they can discuss their troubles, hash out their feelings and enjoy delicately prepared home cooked meals!

This is a bit different from my usual graphic novel reads, and I’m looking forward to it!
