Kiss and Tell A Romantic Resume Ages 0-22 GN (2011 HarperCollins) comic books
1st printing. Story and art by MariNaomi. 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, she carries us through first love and worst love, through heartbreak and bedroom experimentation, as she grows from misfit teen to young woman. Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 208 pages, B&W. Cover price $15.99.
