A new student review of Tomboy: A Graphic Memoir by Liz Prince

Gwendolyn posted a new student review of Tomboy: A Graphic Memoir by Liz Prince. See the full review.

This graphic memoir comments on our gender-constricting world and shares the author's personal journey of acceptance towards herself as she learns to shed the weight of the societal stereotypes she grew up believing.

 

Prince challenges a standard way of thinking, as she speaks out on subjects through a raw and intimate narrative, that translates well to the straightforward comic style she utilizes.

 

The relaxed writing and simplistic outlines in the book read quickly and easily while discussing thought-provoking messages and heavy topics.

 

An educational book in it's own unique way, "Tomboy" is an intriguing read that can be empathetic to some and beneficial to others.
