Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite (Kobo eBook)
In this “truly clever” graphic novel series, the Orthodox Jewish heroine of Hereville meets her match—a magical doppelgänger of herself (Kirkus, starred review).
Mirka is back, and she’s still the only sword-brandishing, monster-fighting Orthodox Jewish girl in town. Or so she thinks. When a misguided troll aims a meteor at Hereville, the local witch grabs the closest thing available to transform the flying, flaming rock—and that would be Mirka’s hair.
The meteor is changed, all right: it’s now Mirka’s identical twin. Doppelganger Mirka, vowing to be a better version of the real girl, sets out to charm all of Hereville, including Mirka’s own family. Our heroine challenges the meteor girl to a three-part contest . . . and the loser will be banished from Hereville forever!
A delightful mix of fantasy, adventure, cultural traditions, and preteen commotion, this fun, quirky graphic novel series will captivate middle-school readers with its exciting visuals and entertaining new heroine.
