Loosely based on a teenager's diary from the 1980s found in a gas-station bathroom, Unlovable is the remarkable story of Tammy Pierce and her sophomore year of high school in 1985. From the first day of school to winter break, LA artist Esther Pearl Watson's lovingly grotesque drawings guide readers through Tammy's teenage ups and downs - dealing with tampons, teasing, crushes, The Smiths, lice and gym showers to name but a few. Tammy's life isn't pretty, but readers will find much that they recognise in this touching and hilarious book.
Esther Pearl Watson lives in Los Angeles, CA with her husband and fellow artist, Mark Todd. Together they authored the influential D.I.Y. tome, Whatcha Mean, What's A Zine?
