A review by ellieafterall
Honor Girl: A Graphic Memoir, by Maggie Thrash


4.5 out of 5 stars. I really, really liked this. I think it felt honest and understandable, especially as a gay girl, and it felt realistic. A teenager who’s struggling with herself and her feelings for a girl. Both things she had never even though about before. And reading it in graphic novel form, too, i think made it more realistic and relatable? like I could picture myself sitting in a corner questioning things. I just wish it didn’t end so abruptly and like, open. I don’t know.

What was I doing before? Was I just...floating along? Maybe I was better off that way. Because what’s ironic is that being in love doesn’t actually make you happy. It makes it impossible to be happy. You’re carrying this desire now. Maybe if you knew where it came from, you could put it back. But you don’t.
