FUN HOME by Alison Bechdel
Fun Home - Alison Bechdel
Growing up in a small town when you are different is not easy.  Add a father who seems to be so exacting, a mother who is intent on her thesis and her theater productions, and siblings who are into their own things makes it harder.  Alison knows she does not like the feminine clothing her father wants her to wear and their house is, as her mother later calls it, a mausoleum.  At times there are moments when she and her father are close, usually around books.  Coming out in college, she must now come home for her father's funeral.
 
This story resonated with me.  I could identify with Alison.  Though they are a family, there is a disconnect between them.  Each person is into their own thing.  No one seems to be there for one another.  I don't know how this family remained together.  There are memories that come out during the book.  They may provide clues to the father's lifestyle but, for Alison, there is no more to them than the face value at the time.  Later she can see the pattern and realize her father thought she knew about him.  There is so many lost opportunities in this family for them to become closer.  I felt sorry for them all.

Review: “The Flesh Cartel #19: Promise (The Flesh Cartel Season 5: Reclamation)” (The Flesh Cartel, #19) by Rachel Haimowitz & Heidi Belleau
The Flesh Cartel #19: Promise (The Flesh Cartel Season 5: Reclamation) - Heidi Belleau,Rachel Haimowitz

  

Please note that this is my rating for the entire series!

 

This 19-book novella series felt more like a long book that's been divided into 19 chapters, and it feels kinda weird to rate each chapter of a book individually (and it also couldn't possibly do the whole story justice this way).

 

But if I HAD to rate this instalment on its own, my rating would be:
