Lumberjanes (5 out of 5 stars) 

Lumberjanes by Noelle Stevenson, Shannon Watters, Brooke Allen, Grace Ellis, Kat Leyh and Faith Erin Hicks is a series of graphic novels about five girls: Jo, April, Mal, Ripley and Molly, who all go to the same summer camp, “Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet Camp for Hardcore Lady Types,” and become best friends when they are all put into the same cabin (Roanoke), with a girl named Jen as their scout-leader. Peculiar things start to happen at the camp, but the camp director, Rosie, doesn’t seem to think they’re that unusual (much to Jen’s annoyance). The five Lumberjanes go on many adventures throughout the books and meet many creatures and beings (human or not human). There’s a woman who lives in the woods with a mysterious past, who can turn into a bear. When Rosie’s away, dinosaurs attack the camp, and the girls meet merpeople, odd robots and much more. 

I really enjoyed reading Lumberjanes because of its great characters, intriguing plot, diversity and adventure. I did not read the books in order, but that may be helpful. I recommend it to ages 8+.
