Surfside Girls Gets A Sequel Graphic Novel From Kim Dwinell At Top Shelf

by Hannah Means Shannon

Top Shelf Productions announced during SDCC that Surfside Girls, Kim Dwinell’s graphic novel series for middle-grade readers about “friendship, fun, and lost mysteries of the local landscape”, will receive a full-length sequel next summer.
Surfside Girls (Book One): The Secret of Danger Point introduced readers to best friends Sam and Jade, who “put together clues ranging from suspicious beachcombers to spooky ghosts to baby dinosaurs in order to save their town from an unexpected threat”.

Surfside Girls (Book Two): The Mystery at the Old Rancho, scheduled for June 2019, presents “even more beautiful beaches, hidden secrets, distracting cuties, and wild adventures”.
Here’s the official description:
When one of the ghosts from Danger Point gets… spooked, it’s time for Sam and Jade to pull out the Journal of Weird and jump into action! Trying to solve this two-hundred-year-old mystery takes the girls all over their town and beyond, all while Surfside’s Annual Surf Competition is going on. Add to the mix a cute surfer boy, a mysterious mustached man with a guitar, and a very jealous Sam — can the surfing sleuths save the day again?
Dwinell explains:

I’ve had so much fun this last year watching readers of all ages discover Sam and Jade’s world. I packed Surfside Girls with Southern California sunshine, and I hope everyone enjoys spending time with it as much as I do. I’m absolutely stoked to show you what the girls get up to in Book Two!

Surfside Girls (Book One): The Secret of Danger Point is now available wherever books are sold. Surfside Girls (Book Two): The Mystery at the Old Rancho will be published in June 2019 by Top Shelf Productions, an imprint of IDW Publishing. For more information, visit
