Level Up

Level Up - Gene Luen Yang, Thien Pham

Hanging out at the library while younger son plays D&D.  Level Up jumped off the endcap and into my hands rather than the books I brought with me.  


Level Up predated the craze for graphic novel autobiographies by a couple of years (2011 publication date).  While the story is fictional, and there are a few fantastical aspects, Level Up is close enough to a real-live coming of age story that it feels like an autobiography.
