I Second That: Tomboy by Liz Prince

Tomboy by Liz Prince

When you hear the word, "Tomboy" what do you think of? Probably a girl with two braids and overalls? Maybe a ballcap? Liz Prince grew up with people throwing that label at her all the time, but it didn't feel right. She didn't fit in with what the other girls were wearing either and as she gets older that becomes more of an issue. In middle school, sticking out for any reason can be dangerous and Liz gets more than her share of attention from bullies and mean girls.

Tomboy is about Liz's quest to find accepting people to hang out with. Anyone who has felt left out or struggled to find a group of friends will find something to identify with in this graphic memoir. There are moments of awkwardness, heartbreak and plenty of laughs as well.
