Honor Girl: A Graphic Memoir (MP3 CD)
Honor Girl is a moving coming of age story and is Maggie Thrash's first graphic novel and her first memoir. Honor Girl takes place at an all girls camp in the south during the heyday of boy bands (especially Maggie's favorite, the Backstreet Boys!) and chronicles Maggie's experience of finding herself falling in love for the first time.— Sarah
Maggie has spent basically every summer of her fifteen-year-old life at the one-hundred-year-old Camp Bellflower for Girls, set deep in the heart of Appalachia. She's from Atlanta, she's never kissed a guy, she's into Backstreet Boys, and her long summer days are full of a pleasant, peaceful nothing-until one confounding moment. A split-second of innocent physical contact pulls Maggie into a gut-twisting love for an older, wiser, and, most surprising of all (at least to Maggie), female counselor named Erin. But Camp Bellflower is an impossible place for a girl to fall in love with another girl. When it seems as if Erin maybe feels the same way about Maggie, it's too much for both Maggie and Camp Bellflower to handle-let alone understand.
