Check out the link above and see how Ariel was nominated for a Readers’ Choice Award.
I think it is really awesome for her to get recognized like this for such a personal story. She wrote all of these graphic novels at a time in her life where she was really just trying to figure herself out. She was brave enough to publish a very personal part of her life with readers and she was able to be awarded for it. I think it is amazing that she got recognized as a good writer for sharing this story she worked on during a weird time in her life. Its inspiring!
