As the story of a ‘zine writer/ animator and his friend I prefer Ellen Wittlinger’s Hard Love’s John and Marisol. As the story of an outsider in a sports- mad high school I prefer Chris Crutcher’s Whale Talk’s TJ. Lia in Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson is more self-destructive than Kyra, Fanboy’s friend, who wears all black and likes Gaiman, hence the nickname Goth Girl. I suppose it sounds like I didn’t like this book, but I did, at least enough to seek out the next book Lyga wrote with these characters.
