In this autobiographical story, Florence Dupré la Tour unveils her childhood in heart-wrenching inks and watercolors: a story of the heavy weight of tradition that forces women to be submissive, and how to resist and escape that fate.

In part two of this autobiographical tale, Florence has left her childhood behind and is crashing headlong into the awkwardness and pain of adolescence. Her body is changing, but she is still just as cruelly clueless about it as she ever has been. And now, The Thing—the one you're not supposed to talk about—is starting to pulse... Florence Dupré la Tour continues her masterpiece of inks and watercolors in this gut-wrenching, hilarious, and ultimately powerful look at what happens when a child is deprived of a proper education: the more they grow up, the smaller the adults around them get.
