Abstract:

In the tradition of Persepolis and American Born Chinese, a wise and funny high school heroine comes of age. Tina M., sophomore, is a wry observer of the cliques and more of Yarbvvorough Academy, and of the foibles of her Southern Californiai intellectual Indian family. She's on a first-name basis with Jean-Paul Sartre, the result of an English honors class assignment to keep an "existential diary." Keshni Kashya's compulsively readable graphic novel packs in existential high school drama - from Tina getting dumped by her smart-girl ally to a kiss on the mouth (Tina's mouth, but not technically her first kiss) from a cute skateboarder, Neil Strumminger. And it memorably answers the pressing querstion: Can an English honors assignment be one fifteen-year-old girl's path to enlightenment? --
