Just in the begining i wanna mention this book mentions eliot page by his deadname because this book released before he came out as trans 
This book wasnt like the other happy go lucky graphic novels , it delt with a number of sensitive issues like toxic relationship , toxic freinship teen pregnancy abortion and more , but it handled all of those so delicately , and still showed how messy teenagers can be with thier chices , decisions and responsibilities . 
Laura isnt a likeable character at all , she is infuriiating , confusing and overall a total douche , while freddy too isnt all very nice herself , she is wrapped in this toxic relationship with laura and cant get out of it , cant stop the cycle of thier on and off realtionship which inturn effects her frienships . 
Laura dean keeps breaking up with me is real , raw and is an amazing read .
