Spinning, Paperback / softback Book

Spinning Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


For ten years, figure skating was Tillie Walden's life.

She woke before dawn for morning lessons, went straight to group practice after school, and spent weekends competing in glitter and tights.

It was a central piece of her identity, her safe haven from the stress of school, bullies and family.

But over time, as she switched schools, got into art and fell in love with her first girlfriend, she began to question how the closed-minded world of figure skating fit in with the rest of her life.

Poignant and captivating, award-winning comics artist Tillie Walden's powerful graphic memoir captures what it's like to come of age, come out and come to terms with leaving behind everything you used to know.
