This graphic novel memoir gives readers a look into the author’s life growing up as a “Tomboy”. She identifies with being a girl, but hates the “girly” standards that society expects from females. She prefers comfy jeans and oversize flannels to frilly dresses, she loves playing with toys that are traditionally meant for boys, and she finds that she can relate better to her boy classmates than girls. All her life she experiences bullying by her classmates and strange looks from adults simply due to the way she looks. This is book explores the difficulty of growing up as a girl in a society that has specific (and sometimes confusing) expectations for each gender, being true to yourself and finding a community where you feel like you belong. Told in graphic novel form, this book addresses some heavy issues in a lighthearted manner, which is accessible to all types of readers.
