This sequel to the viral sensation My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness was also named one of the best graphic novels for 2018!


Struggling with the idea of living alone and adjusting to the effects of her previous book’s success, this follow-up to the award-winning autobiographical comic continues the author’s quest for self-acceptance and love.


"Continuing on where My Lesbian Experience left off, this new installment follows the author-artist through a new chapter in her life as she exposes herself through words and pictures to those closest to her. Awkward and wholly authentic, it is visually stunning, translating the nuance of emotion into heartbreaking graphics that tackle tough subject matter such as anxiety, substance use, self-esteem, female sexuality, and coming out all set against the backdrop of long standing societal and familial pressures." Teen Vogue
