Touchstone, 2009

Barnes & Noble: From the publisher:

“A scathing and meticulously documented autobiographical triumph.” — Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home

“A big leap of artistic ambition and self-discovery; Schrag saved the best for last.” — Kirkus Reviews

“One of the great achievements of contemporary comics.” — The Comics Journal

“By turns funny, raw, and self-indulgent, Schrag perfectly captures the growing pains of a precocious high school senior.” — Publishers Weekly

“Beautifully illustrated…A fine denouement for Schrag’s magnum opus, worthy of the attention of both Alison Bechdel and Michel Foucault fanciers.” — Booklist

“Schrag is a fluid storyteller with a fine ear for dialogue. Her tales are thick with humor, wit, and optimism.” — San Diego Union Tribune
