Thank you to Amulet Books for a free review copy of this one.

SUPER BOBA CAFE is a cute middle-grade graphic novel. It’s a strange little book with a great message at its core. The story follows 13-year-old Aria as she spends the summer in San Francisco visiting her grandmother, Jing Li. She runs a boba cafe that is home to a cat named Bao and fails to bring in many customers, until Aria sets out to fix her grandmother’s marketing issues. When Bao unexpectedly gives birth to eight kitties, Aria finds the perfect solution – or so she thinks – by turning the boba cafe into a kitten cafe. But what she doesn’t know is that her grandmother is harboring a secret that can impact the entire city.

The strongest aspect of SUPER BOBA CAFE is admittedly its artwork. The characters are drawn well, and the scenery is wonderfully constructed. Unfortunately, the story isn’t nearly as strong. That, of course, isn’t to say it’s not enjoyable – it is. The book is out there, but Aria’s storyline is one that is something many young adults experience daily. It’s an important lesson about trust, using the internet, and understanding how cruel others can be.

SUPER BOBA CAFE is an enjoyable book that is a must-read for young adults. At the center of its chaotic storyline is a story with plenty of heart and a lesson all kids should learn.
