Inspirational manga: Serenity 5: Snow Biz Jan 22, 2008
Billed as "inspirational manga", the Serenity series from Realbuzz Studios is a full-color comic book series focusing on slice-of-life teenage drama. The stories revolve around the interaction between the title character, Serenity Harper (a newly transferred high school student with a troubled past) and the school's Christian club (whose members have themselves struggled through a wide range of temptations and who have "adopted" Serenity as one of their own). Each volume contains two or more interlocking short stories that tell the ongoing tale of Serenity's journey of faith.
Summary of Serenity volume 5: Snow Biz Serenity tags along for the Christian club's ski vacation, but soon finds herself wondering if she can stand spending that much time with her quirky friends and her romantic rivals.
(Possible parental advisory: "Serenity" is set amid the pressures of a modern high school, and as such the teenage characters are confronted with realistic issues that range from boredom and jealousy to drug addiction and sexuality. Through it all, the stories present the honest struggle between Serenity's fragile faith and the lure of her former self-destructive lifestyle.)
NOT a good Christian read! Nov 26, 2007
If I could rate this with a number of negative stars, I would! I ordered this set as gifts for young girls and was appalled to find a number of obscenities! The books are published by Barbour (My Utmost For His Highest) and sold by Christian retailers, so I did NOT see a need for concern. Thank goodness I read them first! Steer clear unless you want to teach your kids four letter words, use of "protection," etc.
Good for All Ages Aug 6, 2006
I read somewhere that a mark of a quality work for young people is that adults can benefit from reading it, too. I'm a 55-year-old who has read and enjoyed all the Serenity books. What I appreciate about the writing is that the Christian kids aren't perfect. For example, Kimberly doesn't always do the right thing and it is affecting her relationship with Derek. The script is also laced with humor, which makes the lessons go down easier. And the artwork is incredible, extremely sensitive for an artist who is so young. I'd recommend this series to anybody.
