Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me

Written by Mariko Tamaki, Illustrated by Rosemary Valero-O’Connell

Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me is a gorgeously rendered graphic novel that addresses the sometimes toxic, painful relationships we find ourselves in in high school. This is an LGBTQIA story that focuses not on the painful realities of coming out, or homophobia, but instead tackles young love in all of its awkward, heart-achy glory. Laura Dean is infuriating.
