Author Mariko Tamaki and illustrator Rosemary Valero-O'Connell bring to life a sweet and spirited tale of young love in Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me, a graphic novel that asks us to consider what happens when we ditch the toxic relationships we crave to embrace the healthy ones we need.
Laura Dean, the most popular girl in high school, was Frederica Riley's dream girl: charming, confident, and SO cute. There's just one problem: Laura Dean is maybe not the greatest girlfriend.
Reeling from her latest break up, Freddy's best friend, Doodle, introduces her to the Seek-Her, a mysterious medium, who leaves Freddy some cryptic parting words: break up with her. But Laura Dean keeps coming back, and as their relationship spirals further out of her control, Freddy has to wonder if it's really Laura Dean that's the problem. Maybe it's Freddy, who is rapidly losing her friends, including Doodle, who needs her now more than ever.
Fortunately for Freddy, there are new friends, and the insight of advice columnists like Anna Vice to help her through being a teenager in love.

Lovely story of queer high schoolers comic of age. This One Summer was perfect and so was this. ( )

Mariko Tamaki and Rosemary Valero-O’Connell’s Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me tells the story of Freddie, a high school senior in a tumultuous relationship with her on-again-off-again girlfriend, Laura Dean. Laura is a free spirit, expecting Freddie to be there for her whenever but not reciprocating the same in their relationship. Worse, Laura turns Freddie’s attentions such that Freddie is a bad friend to her closest friends. She’s distracted when she’s supposed to be hanging out with them, expects them to listen to everything that’s going on with Laura, but does not invest in their lives. Freddie seeks to find a way to make the relationship work or to end it for good. Tamaki’s characters feel fully realized, so that even those we only see briefly feel like real people. Valero-O’Connell’s artwork perfectly complements Tamaki’s writing, bringing each person to vivid life and adding wonderful details to the backgrounds that reflect their inner lives and worlds. A lovely story for those looking for a timely romance where a happy ending is not necessarily a relationship. ( )

This is such a lovely, heartfelt, occasionally agonizing comic. ( )

Ahaha, another queer coming-of-age graphic novel from First Second! This would seem to be the theme of my 2019. I just love holding these books; the production quality is so high.

Can we have more YA breakup novels, please? I am not widely read in this genre, but I feel that the omnipresence of romance in YA means there is not nearly enough fiction about toxic relationships. I especially appreciate that Laura Dean portrays a dysfunctional queer relationship; occasionally queer comics adopt a kind of "Rainbow Flags Conquer All" mentality and don't allow people to be, well, people.

Despite being a story of teenage angst, the art in this book is very cute, with elegant, vaguely manga-influenced art and lots of pink. I really enjoyed reading it!

As a reader, I wish I had come away with a fuller experience of Freddy's infatuation with Laura. I know that she has cute hair and a roguish smile, but as a reader I never really saw Laura through Freddy's eyes. Maybe this is intentional, or a mismatch between the text and the illustration style, or simply because I am not the target age for this book.

I did really love the ending, which centers on the tender and emotional friendship between Freddy and her best friend Doodle. I found it very moving. I think it's a mark of an accomplished writer that the book ends on such a strong note, leaving me with a lasting impression of what it feels like to be a young woman in 2019, figuring out what it means to love.

When your sister-in-law cleans out her book shelves, you get free books! Here is #1.

The art is gorgeous, my eyes were happy.

I loved Freddy and I loved her friends (especially Doodle!). The story is relatable and recognizable, and a spot on, sensitive portrayal of a toxic relationship. It’s about understanding who you are and what love should be like. Yes, Freddy, a relationship where the prerequisite is neglecting your friends is bad news.

The LGBTQ themes were written in such a wise and thoughtful way, I wanted to give the authors a hug.

The stuffed animals talking to each other was the cutest thing :)

The ending is great, I punched the air and said “yaaay!” ( )
