An autobiographical graphic novel by Liz Prince, "Tomboy" provides readers with an insightful view into an individual's experiences, struggles, and revelations with identity and gender through simple cartoons and conversational writing.

 

Opinion: 

This graphic memoir comments on our gender-constricting world and shares the author's personal journey of acceptance towards herself as she learns to shed the weight of the societal stereotypes she grew up believing.

 

Prince challenges a standard way of thinking, as she speaks out on subjects through a raw and intimate narrative, that translates well to the straightforward comic style she utilizes.

 

The relaxed writing and simplistic outlines in the book read quickly and easily while discussing thought-provoking messages and heavy topics.

 

An educational book in it's own unique way, "Tomboy" is an intriguing read that can be empathetic to some and beneficial to others.
