46 Down, 6 To Go "Hey Princess" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

I picked up Mats Jonsson's graphic novel Hey Princess based solely on a friend's recommendation after he compared Jonsson to both Lynda Barry and Jeffrey Brown (two of my favorite cartoonists).

Hey Princess is a shockingly honest look at Jonsson's life as a young man. This could be the story of anyone as Jonsson discovers the intricacies of love (and its often attendant emotions of jealousy, pain, and other complications), along with his own search for personal identity.

With its deceptively simple artwork and honest, introspective storytelling, Hey Princess draws you into Mats Jonnson's sometimes crude, often funny, but always engaging coming of age story.

My next book is Rebekka Skloot's The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
