Stitches
By David Small
2009 W. W. Norton & Company
ISBN: 9780393068573
Genre: Graphic Novel, autobiography
Level: High school and adult

This book is both disturbing and intriguing! David's childhood was marked by sickness, little means, less than warm and loving parents and some interesting family dynamics. David is able to escape it all in his drawings and wild imagination and even a little sock-skating in the hospital where his father works. As David becomes a young adult he continues to face adversity in the form of physical and emotional abuse/neglect, an unexplained lump in his neck, and some confusing discoveries about his family that ultimately lead to him leaving home to be on his own at age sixteen. His turmoil will keeps the pages turning.
