When she was growing up, Liz Prince hated wearing dresses, bathing suits, and anything else she thought was “girly.” This causes problems for her, like strangers assuming she’s a boy, her parents getting mad when she won’t dress up for formal occasions, or when she wears a T-shirt over her swimsuit at camp. [when booktalking I show & read the camp T-shirt page]

But–despite the name of the book–she wasn’t exactly a tomboy, either, since she didn’t really like playing sports or doing other typical “boy stuff.” She liked drawing and writing, and that’s exactly what she grew up to do. If you liked Smile and Drama by Raina Telgemeier, or if you want to read a true, funny story about an awesome girl figuring out where she fits in in the world, check out Tomboy by Liz Prince.
