Book Review: Detective Jermain Vol. 1 by Misako Rocks!

Move over Nancy Drew, there is a new detective in town!

Jermain is a sixteen-year-old senior in High School. She is also the daughter of famous detective parents. When she notices students in her school acting strange, she quickly jumps into detective mode to solve the case. With the help of her two friends, Andy, the sweet and smart boy next door and Travis, the cool and popular boy next door. Detective Jermain will not rest until this mystery is solved.

Detective Jermain is a fun graphic novel. You get the mystery/suspense and an unexpected love triangle. The art is amazing. I even found myself trying to draw the characters. I love Misako Rocks! layout of the panels. Unlike with some graphic novels, I never had a hard time finding out which came next.

As the story moves along, they gather clues and meet possible suspects. While this is happening, you are trying to guess who the culprit is.
NOTE: You will be guessing all the way to the end and more than likely you won’t be right.

Detective Jermain is a quick cool read that has a great reveal at the end. The story leaves you wanting more. There is a Vol. 2 in the works so I can’t wait to join Detective Jermain on the next adventure.

I agree! Have you ever seen Scooby-Doo? This whole book reminded me of it, especially because I had no idea who the culprit was until the end, just like Scooby-Doo.
