Lumberjanes by Noelle Steveson and Grace Ellis, drawn by Brooke Allen, is a great (award winning) YA graphic novel series.

Lumberjanes are campers at Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady-Types. Five of them who share a cabin and are great friends - Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley - can find adventure anywhere.

Along with a strong message of girl power, the Lumberjanes use the best curses, siting famous women including Bessie Coleman and Mae Jemison, and solving puzzles with the likes of the Fibonacci sequence.

Follow them on an Indiana-Jones-like adventure through woods stocked with wacky and dangerous creatures from Yeti to talking statues.

Three volumes are currently out in the Lumberjanes series:
1. Beware the Kitten Holy
2. Friendship to the Max
3. A Terrible Plan

Readers from ages 13 to 50 will enjoy this wonderful series.
