Tweeks: Review Tomboy by Liz Prince

Liz-Prince-Tomboy-coverBeing a kid is hard.  You don’t know who you are exactly, but it’s really important that you find out where you fit in.  So, we imagine it was especially hard for Liz Prince when she was growing up because she wasn’t a girly girl who wanted to play dolls and wear dresses and yet she also wasn’t a boy.  In her new graphic memoir, Tomboy, she takes us on her journey to find a happy medium between gender norm stereotypes.   It’s funny and frustrating and in the end offers hope that eventually we will all find our niche.  It’s also a great reminder that you don’t have to be girly to be a girl.
