This was a book that I read in one sitting and had to step outside to get some fresh air afterward to dispel the awkward feelings.  It chronicles the author/artist’s sophomore year in high school and is packed with teenage angst and confusion that comes with the age.

I was not overly impressed with the artwork, it is not a style that I instinctually liked.  It felt a bit scattered and too much packed in one frame.  I gave the book a shot because it was recommended after reading some other books and the library had it in stock.  Other reviews note that the artist improved significantly in her later works so I will keep an open mind if I come across them, but won’t be seeking them out.
