Description

A graphic novel jam-packed with the joys and humiliations of being a teenage girl

Girl Stories began as a series of comics drawn for the teen girls' Web site gurl.com, where they generated thousands of e-mails from teenage girls (and some boys too).

Expanded into a full-length graphic novel, these tales of one girl's adolescence are hilarious, heartbreaking, and honest. Lauren R. Weinstein tells the horrible truth about growing up, surviving embarrassing parents, bullies from hell, best friends, boyfriends, breakups, and trying too hard to be cool--and it has never been funnier.
