princesa. Pero tampoco era como los niños. Se encontraba en un punto incómodo entre ambos. En esta historia, la reconocida autora y artista Liz Prince nos lleva a sus años de niñez y juventud y, con mucho humor y sinceridad, nos explica lo que significa ?ser niña”.
Growing up, Liz Prince wasn't a girly girl, dressing in pink tutus or playing Pretty Pretty princess like the other girls in her neighborhood. But she wasn't exactly one of the guys either, as she quickly learned when her Little League baseball coach exiled her to the outfield instead of letting her take the pitcher's mound. Liz was somewhere in the middle, and "Tomboy" is the story of her struggle to find the place where she belonged." Tomboy" is a graphic novel about refusing gender boundaries, yet unwittingly embracing gender stereotypes at the same time, and realizing later in life that you can be just as much of a girl in jeans and a T-shirt as you can in a pink tutu. A memoir told anecdotally, "Tomboy "follows author and zine artist Liz Prince through her early childhood into adulthood and explores her ever-evolving struggles and wishes regarding what it means to "be a girl." From staunchly refuting anything she perceived as being "girly" to the point of misogyny, to discovering throughthe punk community that your identity is whatever you make of it, regardless of your gender, "Tomboy" is as much humorous and honest as it is at points uncomfortable and heartbreaking."
