    I received an early copy of this graphic novel at Yallfest 2018Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me is a story of realizing that sometimes leaving a toxic relationship is hard, and we must not leave our friends when they ask for help.Freddy is a teenager in love, living in world where no one judges her for her sexuality. This is not a coming out story nor a story about defeating the odds. This is a self-love story and realizing our worth and the ...

    This is one hell of a book. It’s brutal and honest, and I found it really hard to get through in the same way that it’s sometimes hard to face the truth. And boy, does this face the truth. 5 ⭐ This is one hell of a book. It’s brutal and honest, and I found it really hard to get through in the same way that it’s sometimes hard to face the truth. And boy, does this face the truth. 5 ⭐️

    There's a lot to like here and gods know we need more stories with queer POC protagonists and we just need more queer stories for teens that aren't coming out stories. Tamaki perfectly captures the angst and confusion and self-centered-ness and bad decisions of the high school years. On the other hand, she introduces some intriguing story nuggets that I would have loved to have seen explored more deeply, like what is going on with Freddy's parent...

    I had the great opportunity of being given first dibs to read this book in my school QSA club. Not only is it a beautifully drawn graphic novel that I couldn't put down, but it also has prominent issues in the LGBTQ+ community woven into the storyline making the book informative and adorable. A powerful story of an LGBTQ+ woman overcoming an emotionally abusive relationship. I highly recommend this book to anyone! Quick and amazing read.

    "Of course, I know there are LGBTQIA activists who fought for centuries for me to have the right to fuck up like this.I'm aware that I should be grateful that I have the ability to get broken up with and publicly humiliated the same as my hetero friends.I am progress."

    The cover is SO. GOOD. The pink accents? YES GIMME IT. The art throughout really is so pretty. But the plot just... wasn't there for me. Believe me, I'm sad about it. This happened to me with This One Summer, too. Everyone raves about it, I was sure I would love it, but it just felt very meh to me. So, basically if you love Mariko Tamaki (like so many do) you will probably adore this. And if you didn't like This One Summer, you maybe won't love t...
