How to be Ace – Rebecca Burgess

Rating: 5 out of 5.
I’m a big fan of comic books/graphic novels and this one didn’t disappoint. It was great to see representation of one of the lesser represented letters in the LGBTQIA+ spectrum. It’s wonderfully drawn, easy to follow even if you’re not a comics fan, easily digestible, understandable and super relatable.

As with most graphic novels it’s not a long read and I think it would be really useful in educational environments to educate young people on asexuality in a way that they may hopefully connect with. There are a number of books popping up in this kind of vein and this is definitely one of the better ones. By connecting it directly to the personal experiences of the author it gives a really good perspective so it’s not just a clinical representation of what asexuality means, rather a depiction of how people feel and experience their asexuality.

I’d recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about asexuality and whether you are aware of it or not, whether you are on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum or not. I’d also recommend it as a really good graphic novel on the merits of it’s drawing and storytelling.

I received an e-ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
