Stuck in the Middle: 17 Comics from an Unpleasant Age is a collection of comics about middle school. Ariel Schrag edited this volume, and chose comics that echoed the alienation, fears, and awkwardness that adolescence brings. Though a bit repetitious, the book has many high points, notably from Daniel Clowes and Aaron Weiner, and introduced me to several cartoonists whose work I will be searching out.
