a + e 4ever by I. Merey. Lethe Press, 2011.
Ash is an androgynous boy who is subject to much bullying and more by kids at his high school. Eulalie is a tough girl at Ash's school. She comes to his defense and wants to get to know Ash more. But Ash has been damaged by life and is reluctant to let anyone near him. Love versus friendship, love versus sex, gender issues, and more make this an absorbing graphic novel.
