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 as Tillie's interests evolve, from her growing passion for art to a first love realized with a new girlfriend, she begins to question how the close-minded world of figure skating fits in. Poignant and captivating, this 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. Av more

Maybe you won't, but when you do have the time, you'll notice that young girl with glasses on the cover that looks lost. You'll remember that feeling and crack open the first page. Two and half hours later you'll be done reading the book, but Spinning won't have left you. It'll resonate with you the way your memories of childhood often do, and that's exactly what any great book should. Read Full Review
