I give myself the right to fail, to mess up, to create ugly drawings.
I'm kind to myself. In my notebook, I do what I want. What is this, anyway? Is it even a graphic novel? Not sure I care.

The author is a mom and the humor really expands what we think of as being "appropriate" for a mother of daughters. Nov 07, Aidan rated it it was amazing.
