Item Description...
Manga momentum keeps building around the world, and Barbour Publishing has the premier inspirational graphic novels for the American market. In Serenity, Volume 3: Basket Case, the prayer club's pet project is at her irresponsible best, belittling a health class assignment that makes teens care for chicken eggs 24/7 to simulate the work a baby requires. But when an overwhelming responsibility falls into Serenity's lap, who can she turn to for help-the prayer club members she's made fun of, or the God she doesn't quite believe exists? Tween and teen girls will love the continuing spiritual soap opera of Serenity.

Publishers Description

Serenity a mom? The thought's enough to make her crack.

It's the last project she ever expected. Her health class requires each student to care for chicken eggs 24/7 to simulate the round-the-clock nurturing a real baby needs. Serenity thinks that's a tough assignment until she finds herself with much more than a baby chick to care for

Inspirational manga: Serenity Book 3  Jan 22, 2008
Billed as "inspirational manga", the Serenity series from Realbuzz Studios is a full-color comic book series focusing on slice-of-life teenage drama. The stories revolve around the interaction between the title character (a newly transferred high school student with a troubled past) and the school's Christian club (whose members have themselves struggled through a wide range of temptations and who have "adopted" Serenity as one of their own). Each volume contains two or more interlocking short stories that tell the ongoing tale of Serenity's journey of faith.

Story summary of volume 3: "Serenity: Basket Case"
* Someone downloads a "purity test" from the internet and it quickly passes through the school grapevine. Gossip, guilt, and parental guidance ensure.
* Serenity resents being forced to "babysit" an egg for a class project, but she stumbles upon even greater responsibility when she discovers an abandoned newborn in a dumpster.

(Possible parental advisory: "Serenity" is set amid the pressures of a modern high school, and as such the teenage characters are confronted with realistic issues that range from boredom and jealousy to drug addiction and sexuality. Through it all, the stories present the honest struggle between Serenity's fragile faith and the lure of her former self-destructive lifestyle.)
NOT a good Christian read!  Nov 26, 2007
If I could rate this with a number of negative stars, I would! I ordered this set as gifts for young girls and was appalled to find a number of obscenities! The books are published by Barbour (My Utmost For His Highest) and sold by Christian retailers, so I did NOT see a need for concern. Thank goodness I read them first! Steer clear unless you want to teach your kids four letter words, use of "protection," etc.
Awesome Christian Manga  Apr 28, 2006
Serenity is a rebellious high-schooler who somehow always finds herself in the midst of some kind of trouble. She's angry, has a horrible attitude, & is the antithesis of the teen most parents would want their child to befriend. That is, until a local church youth group, who's members attend the same high school as Serenity, decide to make her their "project".

Finally!!! Some manga I feel comfortable giving my step-daughter, 13. She really got into the Yuyu Hakusho books, to which she was introduced by a friend. Neither my husband or myself ever really approved of the Yuyu Hakusho books, but she loved the artwork. When I saw these, I snatched them up. I read through the first one & greatly appreciated the ideas & morals presented. We gave step-daughter the first book in this series for Christmas, & she loves it! She bought the third book at Borders, but couldn't find the second one. (She's getting that for her birthday.)

The one (possible) drawback is that these books read from front to back, like most western books, instead of back to front, like many Japanime books. I mention it simply b/c step-daughter drew it to my attention.

If you've got a teen or pre-teen who loves manga but would prefer they actual read something of substance, this is the series for which you've been waiting. All the flashy artwork with none of the occultic overtones or mystical storylines. Most teens can relate to the stories presented, especially if they attend public school. Step-daughter is eagerly awaiting more releases.
