Shy Ninja | Exclusive Preview
Today we have an exclusive preview of Shy Ninja, a new graphic novel by Ricardo Sanchez, Arianna Florean and Adara Sanchez that will be released by the Humanoids imprint BiG on June 1. It’s a middle-grade graphic novel about a girl with a social anxiety disorder who becomes a ninja to stop her mom from pestering her to join a club. Once she signs up, though, she quickly learns that being a ninja is serious business and she has just stepped into a situation where she is the chosen one who will fulfill an ancient prophecy—tough stuff when you’re too shy to even hang out with your best friend in person.
Check out our exclusive preview, and watch out for the book next week. Enjoy!
