Honor Girl: A Graphic Memoir by Maggie Thrash

funny lighthearted reflective fast-paced


as a teenage lesbian at summer camp it definitely hit! as others have mentioned the art style definitely took some getting used to, but i honestly didn’t find it too grating. maggie’s emotional turmoil was so so real and i know a lot of people were bothered by the sudden ending but i thought it actually captured the way so many relationships of this nature do end. and of course, the age gap was weird. i will give some leeway since i know it’s a graphic memoir and i appreciate maggie thrasher staying true to her experience. i do think seeing as she’s writing as an adult reflecting on her experience it could have been portrayed a little more critically (especially seeing as the graphic novel is being marketed to a YA audience). but! my silly little criticisms aside, i did really enjoy this book and i would definitely check out more from maggie thrasher in the future.
