Praise for Charisma's Turn:
"Jones's vividly saturated art recalls Annie Lee's Black Americana style, smartly complementing the subject matter and addressed literary references. Via a sympathetic protagonist who often feels overlooked, Couvson . . . highlights mature ruminations on how best to support struggling teens."
--Publishers Weekly

"An inspiring story. . . . Couvson's graphic novel is a positive and modern view on the life of a Black teenage girl who blossoms once she is listened to and supported by family, friends, and teachers."
--School Library Journal

"[Charisma's Turn] models the important ways many educators care about and uplift marginalized students who may feel overlooked and undervalued."
--Kirkus Reviews

"In this beautifully illustrated graphic novel that will appeal to young and old, Monique Couvson shows us once again how to release the powerful genius of Black girls."
--Lisa Delpit, MacArthur Fellow and author of "Multiplication Is for White People" Raising Expectations for Other People's Children
