Part poignant cancer memoir and part humorous reflection on a motherless life, this debut graphic novel is extraordinarily comforting and engaging.

From before her mother™s first oncology appointment through the stages of her cancer to the funeral, sitting shiva, and afterward, when she must try to make sense of her life as a motherless daughter, Tyler Feder tells her story in this graphic novel that is full of piercing“but also often funny“details. She shares the important post-death firsts, such as celebrating holidays without her mom, the utter despair of cleaning out her mom™s closet, ending old traditions and starting new ones, and the sting of having the I™ve got to tell Mom about this instinct and not being able to act on it. This memoir, bracingly candid and sweetly humorous, is for anyone struggling with loss who just wants someone to get it.
