bookshelves: graphic-novel, exploring-gender-in-fiction

A sweet, painful, true, wishful and hopeful, horrifying, and insightfully exploratory snapshot of adolescence, with an especial take on gender exploration. It is done in a deliberately messy style that seems to me to perfectly fit the messiness of teenhood.

"Hey, what does your drawing mean to you?" "Escape." Eu and Ash are nervy, complex, like the drawing style here. I have to portion this out in sips as a reward for work."
