Growing up, Liz Prince wasn't a girly girl, dressing in pink tutus or playing pretty princess like the other girls in her neighborhood. And she wasn't one of the guys, either.  She was somewhere in between. But with the forces of middle school, high school, parents, friendship, and romance pulling her this way and that, "the middle" wasn't exactly an easy place to be. TomBoy follows award-winning author and artist Liz Prince through her early years and explores -with humor, honesty, and polgnancy- what it means "to be a girl." 

Opinion: 

Overall I really enjoyed this graphic novel, the story just drags to you into it. I love the character Liz, she's a character that everyone can relate to. This book was really entertaining and shows us all "Tomboys" out in the world (myself included) that we aren't all alone. It shows us that gender norms are very overrated and how we shouldn't waste time on them. I recommend this book to every 7th grade and up girl out there.
