Episode notes

Ariel Schrag spent the summers after each year of high school writing astonishingly frank comics about the experiences she’d been through. When she returned to school the following year, she sold the self-published comics to her peers. Ten years later, the books have been republished, and they’re a remarkable window into her high school years: coming out as a lesbian, her first sexual experiences (with men and women), drinking and using drugs, and lots and lots of crushes. They’re funny, touching and wise beyond her then-years.
