Anyia: Warrior's Challenge by Jacquitta A . McManus is a short comic book about a girl named Anyia. The story is set in Nagoran Forest, where Anyia challenges an overconfident bully who doesn't think she can beat him, based on the fact that she is a girl. She proves that confidence is over-rated and shows the bully a thing or two.

Are you looking for a super short comic for your older child to read? Or just looking for a confidence boost? Then take a look at Jacquitta A. McManus’s book Anyia: Warrior’s Challenge. It is a fast-paced, action-led comic that shows how bullies never win. Anyia: Warrior's Challenge is one of many books that follow the main character Anyia. This book may be short but it is packed with inspiration and feel-good content. McManus left me wanting more because it only shows you a glimpse into Anyia's life; it's just enough to grip you and have you wanting to know what happens next.

The artwork in this comic is simple yet effective for the storyline. I've never read a comic with so little dialog, and yet have it be so empowering. I feel young girls would both benefit and appreciate the story of Anyia as it shows the true power of a girl or woman. The message behind Anyia: Warrior's Challenge is highly relatable today as women still face being discriminated against based on their gender. Young girls need to grow up in this world knowing they can do anything they set their minds to. This comic will certainly aid them in that.
