Though it won't be to everyone's liking (who cares?) I thought this book was amazing. Half-way through I found myself flipping back to the introduction, trying to discern whether I was reading fact or fiction but also, having once been a 15-year old girl, fully understanding that it must be fact-based.
Phoebe Gloeckner is an amazing artist and this book, rebranded now - quite smartly - as a graphic novel (or "an account in words and pictures") is like a master class in how to interweave narrative into graphic novel format and back again. The story made me recall feelings I hadn't experienced or thought of in decades. Simply amazing!
the movie is outstanding. caught the book afterwards, expecting it to be even better. but, no, it's waay too dark.
Terrific powerful, finally a graphic novel suitable for adults.
this is the first novel/graphic novel i have ever read, and i absolutely loved it. completely unapologetic, this story was so raw and real. really looking forward to the movie.
Love Phoebe Gloeckner! Gritty yet wildly enjoyable, a great coming of age in the 1970's
I am so so glad i am not 15 anymore. What a chaotic age. This book captures the angst of that age very well
