From the moment they met in Grade 9, Emilia and Charlotte were best friends. Built on creative writing, indie music, feminist literature, a love of purple, and much more, their special connection sustained them through high school and the many ups & downs that followed — until Charlotte died in 2018 following a long struggle with depression. This graphic memoir is Emilia’s tribute to her memory and the bond they shared, woven together from a series of short episodes as they passed in & out of each other’s lives. It includes themes of mental health and suicide, but more than anything But You Have Friends (titled from a Sarah Kane play) is a humorous, honest story about a special friendship and an homage to a hilarious, smart, and irreplaceable friend. -- a 120-page, full-color, softcover graphic novel with 3" French flaps, 5.75” x 8.25” (portrait)
