This story is about the "green and crazy summer" during which 12 year old Frankie "belonged to no club" and "hung around in doorways." I usually love stories with child protagonists and McCullers depicts the end of childhood so well.

Also, the descriptions of summer are so vivid that I always feel like it's summer, no matter what the weather's like.

I love staring at the art in this series. I think I actually got tangled up once in Batwoman's hair just by reading this. The storyline and characters are well developed, and this is a great book to introduce the series.

Are You My Mother?: A Comic Drama Cover Image
ISBN: 9780544002234
Availability: Special Order
Published: Mariner Books - April 2nd, 2013

This memoir is in the form of a graphic novel and is beautifully illustrated in shades of red and grey. Bechdel uses classic literature, psychological studies, and her own keen insight to explore and better understand her relationship with her mother, and, in the process, better understand herself.


P.S. Bechdel's Fun Home is also amazing!
