The TradeWaiters 73: “Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me” by Mariko Tamaki and Rosemary Valero-O’Connell

It’s been too long since we last read a book by Mariko Tamaki, so join Jeff, Jam, and JD for Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me by Mariko Tamaki and Rosemary Valero-O’Connell. It’s a high school drama about the multiple endings of a romance, as well as friendship, queerness, and life in general. You won’t be disappointed (except in Laura Dean).

Skim, Emiko Superstar, This One Summer, She-Hulk, and Harley Quinn, all by, written by, or co-created by Mariko Tamaki
