Loosely based on a teenager’s diary from the 1980s found in a gas-station bathroom, Unlovable is the remarkable story of Tammy Pierce, as filtered through the pen of Los Angeles artist Esther Pearl Watson.

This is a second collection of a series of comics done by Watson that are still being featured on the back cover of Bust, and are supposedly based on a 1980's diary found in a gas station bathroom. I don't know why the claimed origin seems suspicious to me, but the story and world feels unfailingly real, painfully humiliating at times in its depiction of small town 80's high school life, where Tammy is fat, unattractive, taken advantage of by her peers, tormented by her little brother, and Boy C...more
I recommend this book to everyone. I haven't laughed out loud for funniness for ages. Tammy's exploits are so cute, unaware and hilarious. This book deserves 5 stars because it impels obsession. Tammy may have lost her diary but it was a good cause and everyone should at least read it and enjoy her flourishing personality despite the odds. Well, aside from those dreaded mushrooms...
If you went to high school in the 1980s this may be the graphic novel for you. I read both volumes and relived much of the 1980s and teen drama. The author/ artist found a diary in a gas station bathroom and decided to illustrate it. So crazy.
I'm so grossed out by poor Tammie Pierce's diary, but love her so! I'm sure if I dug out my old Snoopy diary, I'd find stuff almost as embarrassing (although I never kept a visual record of my farts!)
Too good!
A favorite quote:
Thrown-down dance off -- I battled Cassie Smallwood and lost. The truth is that people can be both hateful-hoe-bags and good dancers.
Totally juvenile, but funny with plenty of high school and Texas-suburb-living realness. As good as Volume 1 if you can believe that!

More of the same Welcome to the Dollhouse tragicomic 80s teen melodrama.
This was even funnier than the last one! Oh that Tammy!
Silly with funny artwork, but that's about it.
