The Diary of a Teenage Girl by Phoebe Gloeckner, 310 pages

I'd seen this mentioned as a "visual and raw look at a teenage girl's sexuality" done in words and comic, so I thought it would be an interesting read. I really tried to look at it as viewed through the difference in approach to a teenage sexuality in the 70s, but it just read to me as a young girl victimized by an older man and damaged by the parenting of her mother. I just felt bad for her and the whole book creeped me out. Not a read I would recommend.
