Level Up by Gene Luen Yang
I finished my first book! Well, it was a graphic novel, but I made it about half way through Love and Leftovers before I needed a break from that. I switched to Level Up about a boy who loves to play video games but has parents that want him to be a doctor. He goes back and forth before he chooses one of them and realizes it's himself that he should please and not his family. I'd heard a lot about it a year or two ago, and it's definitely good. The pictures are recognizable as the NES Nintendo system and other games and the cover is like a controller. I think the art and story are equally good. Now I'm going back to Love and Leftovers with Milanos cookies and still my Wild Cherry Pepsi.
