I, WITNESS by Norah McClintock and Mike Deas

I, Witness
Thanks to I was able to read I, WITNESS and share it with my students.

Blood splashes across stark black & white images in this graphic novel by Norah McClintock and Mike Deas. 

Boone seems to always be in the wrong place at the wrong time.  When he and a friend witness the death of another teen, Boone is questioned by the police as well as his friends and the family of the victim.  Swearing he didn't see a thing doesn't answer their questions and now he is facing threats of his own.

The heat from the first incident has barely died down when Boone and his friend are caught by fire in a drive-by shooting.  Boone is injured, but his good friend dies.  Once again the questions fly.  What did Boone see?  Is he not talking because he is protecting someone?

Harassed at school and pressured by the victims' families, Boone decides things have to change.  He has an idea of who might be responsible, but can he figure it out before he becomes the next victim?

Action packed images add intensity to this neighborhood drama.  Readers will be on the edge of their of their seats as Boone tries to find the killer before another life is lost.
