At just 17, Raven Roth’s life takes a hard turn when a car crash kills the foster mom who was going to adopt her. The crash also wipes Raven’s memory clean. Afterward she moves from Atlanta to New Orleans to try and finish her senior year while recuperating. While her own thoughts are still foggy, other people’s thoughts begin to crowd her mind—and if someone crosses her and she wishes them harm, beware.

As written by Kami Garcia, Raven’s brain is already overloaded with typical high school worries and drama before the additional thoughts move in. Illustrator Gabriel Picolo draws these thoughts like fat lightning bolts, reaching across the classroom and prodding Raven in the head. Raven’s aunt and foster sister try to help her regain some sense of self, but they’re also protecting her from powers on the verge of exploding. A critical showdown near the end of the story is beautifully drawn, with ghosts emerging to come to Raven’s aid as she faces a monstrous foe. 

Teen Titans: Raven is a story of self-discovery, and what’s unearthed may be hard to bury again.
