More raw, queer, and heartbreaking than the first two, and I therefore enjoyed more. Schrag takes it to a deeper emotional level and touches on some pretty heavy duty queer, gender & teen issues. However, her witty, sarcastic and charming voice is still present. She also experiments with different art styles; the dream sequences incorporate a realist style, adding a completely new element and feeling to her work. Her drawings have clearly developed as has her storytelling as she grows older and becomes more experienced. As always, her work’s awesome.
