The High School Comic Chronicles of Ariel Schrag
Table of Contents
About The Book
Set in Berkeley, California, Likewise takes us into the holy grail of teenagers, every bit as terrifying as it is liberating: senior year. Struggling with a major longing for her ex-girlfriend who has gone away to college, her parents' post-divorce relationship, anxiety over the future, and all the graphic details of her complicated life, Ariel sets out to document everything and everyone. And when she discovers James Joyce, a whole new world of creativity opens up to her.
Written with unabashed honesty, insight, and humor, Likewise is a brave account of one teenage girl's search for truth.
