I loved the style and the art work but I felt this story was missing an arch. Everything fell into place too neatly and didn't leave me wondering about much of anything.

The title is a little misleading. I had expected that there was more of a relationship between Nicole and Dr. Laura, if not a more compelling phone discussion about her sexuality and parents.

It felt as though the author wasn't sure which story she wanted to tell so she told several at once but none were complete or thorough, which I understand can be used as a method of storytelling but each story the author told was incomplete.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this graphic but wouldn't necessarily recommend it. ( )

I liked the illustrations, and a lot of the stories, but the organization of the whole thing left me confused and sometimes bewildered. Especially regarding her dad - it's touted as this huge part of the narrative and then is pretty much ignored.

I would definitely read another graphic memoir from Georges, because despite the problems I have with the disjointed narration, the lack of background information (why did she take Lambchop and not Lou? Why did she keep her ex's dogs at all?), I did enjoy reading about her. I would definitely hang out with her, though I'm terrified of chickens. ( )

This hit the spot. Funny in parts, feels honest, easy to read and nice drawing. It's not brilliant, but comfortable and just right for a rainy fall day. ( )

This being a non-fiction graphic novel about the author's life I found a lot in this read that I could relate to and I bet you can too. I think a large group of readers can identify with the dysfunctional family dynamics that Nicole has endured throughout her life. This is a remarkably written no-holds-barred look at the effects physically and mentally a self-centered parent can have directly to a person's childhood and also the long-term effects on their later life. Also therefore how it influences each individual in the family differently. The book is ideally put together going back and forth between Nicole's childhood to her as an adult showing how childhood experiences have tremendous consequences on her adult life and decisions. For example, seeing a loved one in a controlling relationship you then follow in the person's footsteps.

Now there are the graphics to discuss which are not the greatest that I have seen. Unless the person in the drawing had on glasses or blond hair, they all looked alike to me. Nonetheless, the drawings portrayed the story exceptionally along with the book's dialogue. Therefore, complimenting each other well. The author has a great sense of humor. So by telling her memoir in the manner of a graphic novel I think it made the story twice as funny due to the fact that you get not only a laugh out loud blurb but also a hilarious picture that goes along with it. Finally, I would like to mention that though this is technically in the LGBT genre since she is a lesbian this actually is a book for everyone. It is just a part of her coming of age story. There are no sexually suggestive pictures except for a kiss. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys graphic novels or who likes a good book.

An intriguing journey through fear and secrets to the heart of family, Georges’ story is a fascinating and fresh addition to a growing genre.
