Nicole's family told her that her father was dead. When she became and adult, she saw a psychic who told her he was alive. Her sister confirmed that indeed he was. Now Nicole isn't sure who she is and what else she may have been lied to about. Luckily, she has radio talk-show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger to give her some advice.

Memoirs are always tricky to review, because it's a story about someone's actual life. There's not really much to criticize with this one anyway. I enjoyed it, thoroughly. The illustrations were fantastic, the story was honest, what more can you ask for in a graphic memoir. At times I didn't like some of the people, Nicole included. Sometimes they too dramatic for my taste, but it is what it is.

This was just a great almost coming-of-age story and I would totally be friends with Nicole Georges if given a chance.

  1. Yes, it can be really difficult to talk about a book that is so personal to the author, so it's good that you enjoyed this one so much. The cover if fantastic, and what a story, I can't believe she was lied to.
