Happy book birthday to Spinning by Tillie Walden!
Figure skating was Tillie Walden’s life. She woke before dawn for morning lessons, went straight to group practice after school, and spent weekends competing in glitter and tights. But as her interests evolve, from her growing passion for art to a first love realized with a new girlfriend, she begins to question how the close-minded world of figure skating fits in. Spinning is a poignant and captivating graphic memoir that captures what it’s like to come of age, come out, and come to terms with leaving behind everything you used to know.
