    If you ever get the urge to write a graphic memoir of your divorce, don t do it And if you ever feel the need to put a double page spread of your reaction to 9 11 in that graphic memoir, don t do that either I can t stress this enough.This book is probably as good as a book about a subject that is literally only of interest to the a...

    Whether you have gone through a divorce or are just looking for a quirky graphic novel with a lot of heart, I highly recommend this candid and heartwarming memoir.Both accessible and refreshingly off beat, this grown up graphic novel walks readers through Copeland s experience of divorce and brings them through the heartbreak for an empowering story of resilience even after a world shattering event The gra

    This was a captivating read I found sad, hopeful, and very authentic Too many times, when divorce cannot be avoided, the people telling of it try to slap a bunch of happy unicorns on it and act like it was the best thing ever I especially liked Ms Copeland s honesty, in how she showed that even when you get a new happy ending, there s still lingering sadness and grief over the death of a marriage, and that s

    It feels like most graphic novel memoirs are from young adults dwelling on coming of age Or of men coming to terms with being human The unintended symbolism of reading Good Riddance on International Women s Day is kind of nice To read the story of a woman in her 40s going through a difficult event one that many adults, not just women go through But to have it written so honestly in the female voice using a med

    This wouldn t have helped me get through my divorce I wonder if writers get the ok from family and friends to put them into books Things others may want to keep private Anyway, some may enjoy this but there must be better books on the subject I think taking w...

    This book was like an okay cup of tea A little bit bitter but still rather good in the end If divorces are all like this, you re probably better off single Not my usual read, but definitely interesting. Won from Goodreads Giveaway

    Simple, charming illustrations enhance the text.


  9. Kate Stericker Kate Stericker says:

    On the whole, this graphic memoir was an enjoyable read the visuals are attractive and cleverly done and it s easy to become invested in Copeland s story despite its personal nature However, I was turned off by the mean spirited barbs that occasionally pepper her narration, particularly since many of them target people who have not wronged Copeland in any way Although I believe they were meant to be funny, judgmental co

    I m reading a lot of pretty heavy nonfiction right now, so I perused the graphic literature section of my library a breezier format I powered through this graphic memoir in an afternoon and I m glad it s over Even though Copeland reveals a lot about her family and her divorce and remarriage, I didn t feel like I got a true sense for who she is or any deep realizations she had because of this too much hiding Also, I don t
