I was finding it difficult to read stories so I picked up this comic. It made me sad but also showed the importance of how you should avoid getting into relationship which feel one sided and the problems caused by having shitty people around you causing you to be like them. Talk to your friends and make sure they are ok too. 
Easy read, the art style and colours chosen for this monochromatic comic is absolutely beautiful. Its very short sadly but still would recommend it.

 - I truly love that there are enough queer books out there now that it's possible to have books that show queer people can be jerks, too.
- LAURA DEAN KEEPS BREAKING UP WITH ME really gets into heavy teenage feelings: that feeling that this might be your only chance at love, even though you're so young.
- I loved the art style of this book as well. It's much more detailed than many YA graphic novels are, and I felt it really got some of the emotional nuances across well.

I absolutely loved the art style of this book. The color palette and the delicate lines created such a strong mood. If you’re a person who has ever watched someone be in a relationship with a manipulative/toxic person, this is a tough and stressful read.
SpoilerI think it’s important to show those kinds of relationships as a warning, but I also wish that the decision to break up with Laura Dean came from within Freddy instead of from an adult woman on the internet. The ending tied up a bit too nicely for me, but I did feel strongly for Freddy and was relieved that she was out of that situation.
