"Continuing on where My Lesbian Experience left off, this new installment follows the author-artist through a new chapter in her life as she exposes herself through words and pictures to those closest to her. Awkward and wholly authentic, it is visually stunning, translating the nuance of emotion into heartbreaking graphics that tackle tough subject matter such as anxiety, substance use, self-esteem, female sexuality, and coming out all set against the backdrop of long standing societal and familial pressures." – Teen Vogue
"...fans will be eager to check in on Kabi and cheer for her floundering movements toward happiness." – Publishers Weekly
"She may not realize it, but manga author Nagata Kabi is a voice for this generation." – Boston Bastard Brigade
"I will not type that this genre of visually exaggerated autobiographical comic is new, but instead that I haven't seen it expressed this way before. The scale is a single family and Ms. Kabi uses that claustrophobic scale to show how devastating the disapproval of the family unit can be." – The Matador Review
"...readers who devoured My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness need to pick up this volume, if for no other reason than to know that happiness is a never-ending battle for many, but there are always reasons to keep putting up the good fight." – Anime News Network
