Back in grade school, liking someone was a big deal—even more so if you like like someone. In those days, liking wasn’t taken lightly. If someone somehow caught wind of who you liked, your life would be over. No hyperbole intended.

I recently read Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang’s In Real Life and I loved it. This graphic novel deals with the issues of sexism, online relationships, economics, and 3rd world exploitation—all wrapped up in an easy-to-digest story for young adults.
