by Jarrett Krosoczka
A graphic novel memoir of Jarrett Krosoczka’s troubled childhood. Jarrett lives with his grandparents who, while loving to him, are also loud, opinionated individuals who really don’t want to be raising any more children. His mother is an addict who is in and out of rehab, and he has no idea what his father’s name is, let alone where to find him. He takes up drawing as a way to express his feelings during a non-normal upbringing. As a teenager he begins to piece together the truth, tracking down his father and reconciling with his mother.
