For being a graphic novel, this book HAS feeling. I smiled, laughed, turned red, cried, got angry and almost throw up - while reading this book. And, of course, it's a memoir, which is my favorite variety of graphic novel. Prince is brutally honest in the retelling of her childhood, where she felt she never fit in. She is a girl, but not a girly-girly. She looks like a boy, but is not a lesbian. She is all girl, but just a TOMBOY. I enjoyed the variety of graphics included - drawings, diary entries, charts and graphs. Although I have to admit that some of my fondest for this book is definitely related to the fact that there are a lot of 80's references (Prince was born is 1981).
