Jess and Angie are best friends, so when Angie comes out and starts dating Margot, a rich girl from a different high school, Jess tries to be supportive. Jess has secretly loved Angie for a long time - and she doesn't plan on losing their relationship to the shark-infested waters of Angie's new, cliquish social circle so easily. But then a girl goes missing after a wild house party, with Jess and Angie right in the middle of it. And both of them are lying. Spooky, contemporary queer YA packed with morally complex female characters!

I love everything about My Lesbian Experience. Nagata is extremely open about her struggle with mental illness and unfulfilled need for human connection in a resoundingly familiar way for anyone with any sort of developmental disorders or social anxiety. The traditional manga-style drawings help to further convey her sense of mental infancy that is at odds with her physical body and societal expectations - a feeling that isn't explored much outside of studies on autism. A highly empathetic must-read, especially for anyone interested in "abnormal" human psyche.
