PRISM AWARDS FINALIST 2021

Selected as a 2020 LGBTQIA+ Graphic Novel for Young Readers by Publishers Weekly

"When I was in school, everyone got to a certain age where they became interested in talking about only one thing: boys, girls and sex. Me though? I was only interested in comics."

Growing up, Rebecca assumes sex is just a scary new thing they will 'grow into' as they get older, but when they leave school, start working and do grow up, they start to wonder why they don't want to have sex with other people.

In this brave, hilarious and empowering graphic memoir, we follow Rebecca as they navigate a culture obsessed with sex - from being bullied at school and trying to fit in with friends, to forcing themselves into relationships and experiencing anxiety and OCD - before coming to understand and embrace their asexual identity.

Giving unparalleled insight into asexuality and asexual relationships, How To Be Ace shows the importance of learning to be happy and proud of who you are.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Informative and heartfelt. Rebecca's journey gives voice to asexual experience, combined with feelings surrounding growing up which the majority can relate to. How to Be Ace strikes a fine balance between memoir and information. * Broken Frontier *
I wish this book existed in my late teens. It would have made the next decade of my life so much easier to navigate. It's not preachy at all - just personal, relatable and supportive. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who thinks they might be on the asexual spectrum. * Happily Ever Homebody *

“Empowering Story!”

I honestly loved this! Seeing how the author struggled with their sexuality and how they were afraid that they were broken, really broke my heart. No-one should have to feel like that no matter what the issue/topic... More

“A fantastic book and one that is much needed.”

This is a book I wish had been available when I was younger, as I have never felt as seen as I did in the questions that were asked in this book. I think the fact that this is a memoir rather than a 'guide'... More
