Description

From ND Stevenson, the New York Times bestselling author-illustrator of Nimona, comes a captivating, honest illustrated memoir that finds him turning an important corner in his creative journey-and inviting readers along for the ride.

In a collection of essays and personal mini-comics that span eight years of his young adult life, author-illustrator ND Stevenson charts the highs and lows of being a creative human in the world.

Whether it’s hearing the wrong name called at his art school graduation ceremony or becoming a National Book Award finalist for his debut graphic novel, Nimona, ND captures the little and big moments that make up a real life, with a wit, wisdom, and vulnerability that are all his own.

Named one of Bank Street College of Education’s Best Children’s Books of the Year!

Publisher Review

"This is a highly personal tale of an emotional journey that somehow also manages to feel universal. A snapshot of success and struggles that adds to the conversation about mental health." - Kirkus Reviews "Stevenson makes [himself] vulnerable, and readers will appreciate [his] honesty, compassion, and hard-won wisdom." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Deeply affecting, heart-wrenchingly honest. This work of pure vulnerability and ultimately hope may serve as a vital lifeline for young fans in need of having their own inner struggles reflected in their heroes. An incredibly brave offering from one of comics' most precious creators." - Booklist (starred review) "Stevenson's illustrations are sweet, simple, and confident. If the memoir feels a bit scattered at times, so does the experience of youth itself; Stevenson brings unique and endearing insight to the messy process of growing up." - Publishers Weekly "[The book] is a coming-out story, a love story, a tale of disorientingly rapid professional triumph, and a story about mental health and illness." - The New Yorker "The imagery Stevenson builds around mental health and burnout is so well-crafted and sincere that it should be added into the mental vocabulary of every creative human." - Buzzfeed
