I Am Not Okay With This | Charles Forsman
Fifteen-year-old Syd feels totally out of place.
She's skinny but not 'hot-skinny', she's dealing with the death of her father in silence, and her best friend (who Syd is really in love with) is dating a homophobic bully. Syd's guidance counselor gives her a diary in which to vent her frustration, but Syd has another outlet for her anger, one which threatens to overwhelm her entirely. From acclaimed cartoonist Charles Forsman, I Am Not Okay With This expertly channels teenage ennui while telling a powerful story about the intense and sometimes violent tug of war between trauma and control.
