California comics artist Maia Kobabe‘s memoir documents eir journey of feeling nongirly from childhood to realization that e is nonbinary and asexual. E also writes about switching to e/em/eir pronouns; hearing them for the first time gave em the “biggest tingle” down eir spine. (The Spivak pronouns are unusual and I‘m pleased to meet someone who uses them.) Sweet and honest with full colour art. #Queer 🏳️‍🌈

It was the first time I could remember hearing queer references in song lyrics. I only let myself listen to the tape once through per day, afraid that I would wear it out.

The importance of teens seeing LGBTQ representation in books. ❤️

California College of the Arts autobiography in comics instructor Mari Naomi: A good way to get started is by listing your biggest secrets —at least one of them should suggest a story!
Maia Kobabe: Nope. No one gets my secrets. They are mine.
Naomi: Try writing down some of the things you consider your “demons.”

At some point we all have to face getting old. This book deals with all the difficult conversations one faces when dealing with an aging parent. It's funny in parts, sad in parts, but honest and necessary.

Great book for those who like graphic memoirs.

Smrloomis Completely agree. This is a really great graphic novel 👍🏽 1d

I deeply loved this graphic novel. Deeply. Starting with conversations with her young son about race and covering growing up Indian in a non diverse American town, entering into an interracial marriage, and life after Trump‘s entry into politics.Funny and heartbreaking, I was able to relate to so much of this. Another book I will need to buy so that I can force others to read it. Unofficial #24in48

I skimmed the summary of this book and it didn't really seem like my kinda thing, but I read it anyway cuz someone recommended it to me. Can't say I enjoyed it, but that's on me. The book delivered exactly what it promised to deliver. Food memoirs just aren't for me.

Silver lining: I discovered there's a movie called “Relish“, so this counts as my #PopSugarReadingChallenge: “a book with the same title as a movie or TV show but is unrelated to it“

This is both beautifully written and beautifully illustrated, narrating the story of the author's family's time in Vietnam and flight to the US as refugees. It's also a moving exploration of the relationship between parents and children, and how we view and define each other.

5⭐ Highly recommended

😭 A poignant graphic memoir of loss and trying to find your way out to the other side, whatever that looks like. It had to cost so much emotionally to publish this story. I hope it brings a bit of healing to other grieving souls.
