Book Recomendation: Ivy
Without doing a search online, I have to wonder how much of the content of this book could be autobiographical from the author. At times I felt like saying “get out of my head!” Main character Ivy Stenova is an emotional maelstrom churning through hopes for the future and a tumultuous senior year in high school. Pretty much the only thing she is good at is art. The story is grounded somewhere in the 1980s to the early 1990s [letters in the mail, landline telephones, mix tapes], probably the latter with a reference to Tim Burton films. It’s a coming of age story that goes hardcore. Definitely read this if you love indy comics.
