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.
