Tegan and Sara: Junior High
Author: Tegan Quin and Sara Quin; illustrated by Tillie Walden
Based on the young lives of Grammy-nominated indie-pop twin-sister duo Tegan and Sara, who have sold well over a million records, with artwork from Eisner Award-winner Tillie Walden, this opening book of a middle-grade graphic novel duology explores growing up, coming out, and finding yourself through music and sisterhood. A prequel of sorts to their bestselling adult memoir High School, now an 8-episode Freevee television series!
When growing up gets messy, find someone to hold on to.
Before the indie-pop duo Tegan and Sara took the world by storm, Tegan and Sara Quin were identical twins trying to find their place in a new home and new school. Tegan and Sara: Junior High tells their story. From first crushes to the perils of puberty, surviving junior high is something the sisters plan to face side by side, just like they've always faced things. But growing up also means growing apart, as Tegan and Sara make different friends and take separate paths to understanding their queerness. For the first time ever, they ask who one sister is without the other.
Set in the present day, this inspiring, lightly fictionalized autobiography offers a glimpse at Tegan and Sara before they became icons, exploring their shifting sisterhood, their own experiences coming out, and the first steps of their musical journey.
