In Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me, Mariko Tamaki's signature wit and heart are on full display in a coming-of-age story about love, loss, and the messiness of teenage relationships.

Told in a graphic novel format, the story follows Mariko, a young woman who is hopelessly in love with the charming but volatile Laura Dean. Despite Laura Dean's repeated breaks-ups, Mariko can't seem to help but fall back into her orbit, drawn to Laura's magnetic personality and the intensity of their connection.

As Mariko navigates the complexities of her relationship with Laura Dean, she begins to question her own self-worth and the boundaries of her own desires. With the support of her friends and family, Mariko embarks on a journey of self-discovery, learning to embrace her own identity and set boundaries for herself.


A powerful and poignant graphic novel that captures the heartbreak, humor, and longing of teenage love, Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me is a must-read for anyone who has ever been in love with someone who is wrong for them.
