I chose Graphic novel/ Manga because I have recently downloaded this app called Webtoons, where you can basically read cartoons/graphic novels of your choosing. I am currently reading one called Lookism. This is about a fat/ugly boy who is bullied at school. Something happens and he wakes up in another 'perfect' body. His other body still exists but sleeps while this one is awake. He takes turns to live alternate lives in both bodies. He sees the way people accept and gravitate towards him merely because he is fit and handsome. This is an interesting story and the drawings are also good. The story is ongoing, so I have not yet completed it.

I actually have a tough time reading Manga/Graphic novels. I find the pictures distracting. Not sure why. I've tried a few different books in this genre, but haven't been able to enjoy them. :eusa-think:

That story sounds very interesting, though! I'm glad you're enjoying it!
