The book that I will be reviewing is the graphic novel Archie Volume Five, written by Waid Mok. This graphic novel is about Riverdale being put in complete shock after a major car crash left Riverdale's beloved Betty Cooper immobile. While Betty struggles to regain the power to walk again, Reggie Mantle has become the talk of the town as many lead to believe that he is responsible for what happened to poor Betty. Furthermore, Betty is soon realizing how loving and caring all her friends are toward her and how much they would like to help her in any way possible, especially, Archie Andrews who has seems to have fallen in love with her again. Unfortunately, Veronica has come to realize this and wonders where this will put her in Archie's life. While many of the lives of Riverdale change, friendships, love interests, and trust start to change, it puts much damage to the people of Riverdale. Riverdale is counting on the teens to help fix it and put the town back to the way it was once before. I would give this book a 5/5 star rating. @PrimaBallerina of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
