Kiss & Tell: A Romantic Resume, Ages 0 to 22 | MariNaomi
336 pages | Harper Perennial | 3.15.11
From her father and mother's interracial marriage to her own "you show me yours, I'll show you mine" moments on the playground--from drug experimentation to sexual/identity questions--MariNaomi lays her inner life bare. Kiss & Tell is her funny and frank memoir in graphic form: a fresh and offbeat coming-of-age story unfolding against the colorful backdrop of San Francisco in the '80s and '90s. Through deft storytelling and charming illustration, MariNaomi carries us through first love and worst love, through heartbreak and bedroom experimentation, as she grows from misfit teen to young woman.
