Told through real-life journals, collages, lists, and drawings, this coming-of-age story illustrates the transformation of an eighteen-year-old girl from a small-town teenager into an independent, city-dwelling college student. Written in an autobiographical style with beautiful artwork, Little Fish shows the challenges of being a young person facing the world on your own for the very first time and the unease - as well as excitement - that comes along with that challenge.

I thought this book was so much fun to read. I laughed my way through most of it.

Little Fish is a graphic novel / memoir about the author's first year in art school, covering her transition from a small Michigan high school to a big East Coast city art college. Ms. Beyer tells her story through a blend of journal entries and lists that she created at the time with recent comic-style artwork and collages. We discover that she's a DIY indie/punk sort of student, who is also very thoughtful and conscientious. Ramsey's insight into finding herself academically, as well as finding friendships and discovering a sweet romantic interest is very refreshing in its sincerity and innocence. If you seek a memoir about college life that isn't all about sarcasm, partying and bad behavior, this is your book. For ages 12+.
