When Laura and her mother decide to move from Seattle to Deluge, the last thing they expect is to see frogs raining from the sky the moment they drive into town. Laura believes the unusual rainfall is a bad omen and is not optimistic about the move. On the other hand, her mother feels moving was a great decision, and she encourages Laura to participate in the town's activities and use the opportunity to make new friends. The next day, Laura meets Kevin, a boy who saves her from what she presumes is an acid rainfall. As they converse, Kevin hints that frogs and acid rain are not the only abnormalities in Deluge. Laura seeks more answers from another local, Mrs. Winston. Unfortunately, the answers she gets frighten her because they make her realize she is trapped in a cursed town that no one can ever leave. To find out what happens next, grab a copy of Deluge, a graphic novel written and illustrated by Carolyn Watson-Dubisch and Mike Dubisch.

Deluge is an intriguing story filled with mystery, suspense, and adventure. The story starts off as ordinary, but it quickly turns into an unpredictable tale. I was on the edge of my seat, wondering what would happen next. Carolyn Watson-Dubisch and Mike Dubisch showcased their combined creativity by telling this story in text and visual form. The unique storyline and the amazing characters make this novel captivating and memorable. My favorite part is the illustrations. The art gives it an eerie vibe that perfectly corresponds with the bizarre nature of the story. The characters’ emotions were easy to read, and little details like the black cat, the painting, and Mrs. Winston’s trinkets formed clues that could only be visually understood. I enjoyed this story and hope to read more books from these authors. This is just the beginning of Laura’s journey; more is yet to come. Great work.
