Calling Dr. Laura: A Graphic Memoir GN (2013 Houghton Mifflin) comic books
1st printing. Story and Art by Nicole J. Georges. When Nicole was two years old, her mother told her that her father was dead. When she was 23, a psychic told her he was alive. Her half-sister admits that the psychic is right and that the whole family has conspired to keep him a secret. Sent into a tailspin about her identity, Nicole turns to radio talk-show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger for advice. Calling Dr. Laura tells the story of what happens to you when you are raised in a family of secrets, and what happens to your brain (and heart) when you learn the truth from an unlikely source.
