Book Review: Sidescrollers by Matthew Loux

Hello fellow readers! I'm back for my last book review before TBF in may. this week: Sidescrollers by Matthew Loux!
Brian, Brad, and Matt are best described as lovable, perpetual losers. They're good guys who just lack direction and are all too happy to be enjoying that lazy time after high school. Their favorite thing to do in life is to play video games, eat junk food, and kick around the suburban town they live in. All of this tranquil laziness is interrupted when Brian, Brad, and Matt discover that the new girl, Amber (of whom Matt is sweet on), is going to that night's big local rock show with Richard, the bully football jock. Determined to steer her away from Richard, the boys are launched of of their lazy rears and forced into a grand adventure. Chased by an irate football team, a vengeful troop of Girl Scouts, and a stalking evil cat that may actually be possessed by Satan, our heroes are thrust into a giant rock 'n' roll video game adventure.

While i love reading regular books, I have a special place in my heart for graphic novels and was really happy when I found out that Sidescrollers was one. Overall, this book was just a blast to read. The three main characters, Brian, Brad, and Matt, jumped off the page with every panel and their actions throughout the book had me laughing and rooting for them the entire time.

The art style was really pleasing to look at, which only made the book all that more enjoyable. It's a quick read (i read it in about a day or two), but it's worthwhile none the less. The plot was super engaging the entire time, making this book really hard to put down. The entire story takes place over one day, but so much goes on that it really does feel like a "rock 'n' roll video game adventure" the blurb described above.

In conclusion, if you're a fan of graphic novels or a quirky high school adventure, then you should definitely pick this book up next time you're at the library!

Happy reading TBF friends. this is Katie C. signing off. Peace!
