Clever, and utterly charming, Yolen’s Foiled has the humor, wit, and pacing of a well-played fencing match! It's wonderful and razor sharp.
Aliera Carstairs has never thought of herself as special, rather she endures high school with an outsider’s perspective. She doesn't consider herself anything more until she puts on her fencing mask and faces her opponent brandishing her foil. Then her world is painted in Technicolor and she is a force to be reckoned with. Little does she realize that her foil, which had been purchased at a tag sale by her mother, gives her great power that will lead her to protect the magical world of Helfdon. (First Second, Apr., 160 pp., $15.99, Graphic Novel, ISBN: 9781596432796)
