(W) Lynda Barry (A/CA) Lynda Barry
Lynda Barry captures all the glorious magic and excrutiating pain of junior high school in this Ernie Pook Comeek
collection from the early 90s. The star of this collection is 14 year old Maybonne who relays the angst and insecurity of life through hand scrawled diary entries, class assignments, and letters, in cursive with doodle and bubble letters. Barry deftly portrays the capricious nature of teen friendships, adolescent peer-pressure, and the kill or be killed nature of a middle school's social scene in her signature style.
