Shake Girl

// 14 May 2008

Fifteen students and two professors at Stanford have produced an excellent graphic novel, which tells the story of a teenage Cambodian girl working at a stall selling shakes, and how she ends up getting doused in acid.

The storytelling could have turned patronising and hand-wringing, but the students navigated around this well:

That’s my book. I am one of those students. I am in the back as Lauren O, even.

Wow! I am a massive comics geek and I will be reading this on my lunchtime today at work!

I sent a link to When Fangirls Attack too, because I know there are a lot of feminist comic book readers out there that will be very interested in this.
