Good for: People who like tales of painful adolescence, I suppose. I did not greatly enjoy this story; it didn’t tell me why I should care. The only chapter I really found compelling was “The New Machine,” which is two pages long and which you can read right here. There are far more affecting memoirs about illness and recovery out there.
I usually try to stretch a little farther away from the cover image in my drawings, but given the subject matter this was really, really hard to illustrate in a way that wouldn’t make certain people I know queasy!
