If you can get past the murderously minuscule cursive script in which this entire graphic novel is penned, you have a quiet little winner to savor. There is nothing deeply profound in this story of a rather unhappy childhood but certain scenes ring true and may be long remembered. For me, those scenes involve the author/narrator's interactions with her high school counselors. They provide both a reality check and a hope, an "out", for her.

I would enjoy reading more from this author but upon searching further I learned that she passed from cancer in 2016, in her 30's, tragically young. Such a loss, and leaning of this loss, it made me all the more appreciative to have heard this author's story and voice.
