Award-winning comics creator and author of the bestselling Invisible Emmie Terri Libenson returns with a companion graphic novel that captures the drama, angst, and humor of middle-school life. Perfect for fans of Raina Telgemeier, Jennifer Holm, and Victoria Jamieson. Middle school is all about labels. Izzy is the dreamer. There's nothing Izzy loves more than acting in skits and making up funny stories. The downside? She can never quite focus enough to get her schoolwork done. Bri is the brain. But she wants people to see there's more to her than just a report card full of As. At the same time, she wishes her mom would accept her the way she is and stop bugging her to "break out of her shell" and join drama club. The girls' lives converge in unexpected ways on the day of a school talent show, which turns out to be even more dramatic than either Bri or Izzy could have imagined.

That last page! Brilliant! As with "Invisible Emmie," there are two girls in this book. Izzy is the dramatic one with difficulties focusing. The more that fact is pointed out to her, the harder it gets. . . Bri the Brain is the second girl. Her left-brain tendencies are rebelling against the request from her mom to help out with the middle school talent show at the last minute. Libenson uses a different style for each girl. Izzy's chapters have smaller illustrations and more text. Bri's chapters are full-color panels with very little additional narrative. I struggled a bit to keep everyone straight between the two stories and kept watching for overlap like in Emmie. If you haven't read it yet, don't make the mistake I did. Just enjoy the two stories and the sweet ending.

Positively Izzy is a really good book in my opinion. The series that Terri Libenson is making is really interesting and shows the funny but also dramatic lives of tweens. It's quite confusing how there are two different characters that go to the same school but do not know each other, I also don't understand how their stories relate. But overall I recommend this book if you want to read a book that is a bit like a comic book and a little bit also like a short chapter book. But in the end, all the books relate to each other and the plot-twist endings are really cool. I rate it 4 and a half stars.

This didn’t grab me as much as I thought I might, but I still enjoyed the characters. Plus, there's a great lesson about not being selfish at the end.

Positively Izzy, In my opinion I think that this was a good book. It was also a little confusing how it switched to different characters. I would like to thank my good friend for showing me this book so I could read it too! The ending of this book was surprising and there are lots of good illustrations!

"Positively Izzy" is a sweet story about overcoming your fears and trying something new, filled with the small, daily dramas that make up the lives of tween girls.

A good choice for fans of Svetlana Chmakova and Raina Telgemeier. I definitely did not see the twist coming at the end!
