Staff Reviews


A memoir that hits the highlights and summarizes Stevenson’s life. This is a journal to us and to author. It is a scrapbook. It is a look back at memories that are still being processed. From 2011 to 2019 Stevenson takes us on a strange, beautiful, self-centered (but not necessarily selfish), realistic journey. While they do not go into extreme details, they explore their rise to fame, their successes, their failures, going to art school, jobs (paying and not), websites that launched their work, about living on their own and with roommates, much is dealt with about their mental health and finally finding love when they did not think it was possible. Aimed for ages at least 14 to adult due to concepts more than context. A fun but not easy ride. — Jeanette

Description


From Noelle Stevenson, the New York Times bestselling author-illustrator of Nimona, comes a captivating, honest illustrated memoir that finds her turning an important corner in her creative journey—and inviting readers along for the ride.

In a collection of essays and personal mini-comics that span eight years of her young adult life, author-illustrator Noelle Stevenson charts the highs and lows of being a creative human in the world.
