Tower of Treasure by Scott Chantler
This was lots of fun. Dessa is strong, spunky and smart. She's fiercely determined to find out what happened to her brother, even though she knows she's going up against tough odds. She's got her two friends to help her, although they often cause more trouble than help. There wasn't a ton of character development or back-story yet, which was fine because this is for middle school kids and it wasn't that long. I'm sure as the series goes on we'll learn more about Dessa's past and more about her friends as the search for the chamberlain, who has disappeared at the end of the book, and try to find Dessa's brother.
I would definitely recommend this one for a middle school graphic novel collection.
