 Scouted by Emerson  Hurricane Season book coverHurricane Season

Just Peachy book cover 
Just Peachy: comics about depression, anxiety, love, and finding 
the humor in being sad  
by Holly Chisholm   

I loved this graphic novel because it shows us that if you have anxiety you can get through it by calling a friend or just taking a deep breath.
