Luz Sees the LightChange is in the air Power outages are increasing and gas prices are soaring At first 12 year old Luz balks hardly thrilled by the prospect of actually having to walk to the mall But Luz doesn't mope for long After all her name pronounced loose means light Soon this intelligent and spirited chica begins to understand that she must change with the times As food prices rise Luz decides to help creat. What I did like The illustrations are fun The muted mono color with sharp black and white lines color scheme lends itself to a story that takes place during blackouts and Luz is a natural consumerist and reluctant environmentalistWhat I didn't like It's VERY DIDACTIC and does not disguise it's messages about energy consumption sustainability and other environmental concernsThat said when I was young I had this fact based coloring book on the environment and I loved it I loved filling in all the gallons of water it took to take a single shower and because the memory of this is still so vivid for me I assume it has informed my current environmental perspective Should work in a school setting but I'm not sure if kids will get into for fun As usual I say Let the kids decide

E a self sustainable community by transforming a run down city lot into a garden where she and her neighbors can grow their own fruits and vegetables But when she solicits help from her friends boy crazy Anika and computer whiz Robby they think she's a little loco Luz pedals her idea on the street but the community is eually dismissive Can Luz pull off her plan and help change her world alone This. When I think about this book I find myself trying to decide if it's too didactic And honestly I kind of feel like if I have to ask that uestion it probably is But when I think about what I read as a kid I realize that I read a lot of didactic literature And I enjoyed it I liked reading message stuff in the comic medium WAY better than reading narrative nonfiction Comics was how I consumed lots of information So I'm not sure this book deserves to die just because it has an agenda For kids curious about the effects of global warming this would probably be awesomeHere's what I liked1 Luz She's not white AND does not conform to gender stereotypes2 Silly subplots involving computers and rabbits and young love3 The slightly future time period Blackouts are getting freuent Gas prices are around 7 a gallon Yay for casually incorporating speculative elements into J comicsAnd what I didn't like1 Colors At first I enjoyed the brown and black coloring in depicting the blackout But once we got back to a powered world I wanted things to change A green accent color would have been awesome at the end for example 2 view spoilerNo acknowledgement of the work involved in keeping up a community spacegarden that ends up being created It's a big deal that they're DONE And no system is mentioned for making sure things will be maintained hide spoiler

I read this graphic novel with my daughter who received it as a xmas present alongside Bone this year and it was a completely satisfying read The story is simple the drawings are great and the message about over consumption and environmental issues particularly in already impoverished areas was clear enough to get conversation started and for her to understand it and strong enough to get the plot moving through to its end More than twice the narrative and characterization made her burst out laughing okay I admit I didn't really get those jokes but hey I'm not five and she's re read it over and over I hope it's part of a series because I'd love to read another one with her
