Summary
Following her acclaimed Honor Girl, Maggie Thrash revisits a period of teenage depression in a graphic memoir that is at once thoughtful, honest, and marked by hope.

A year and a half after the summer that changed her life, Maggie Thrash wishes she could change it all back. She's trapped in a dark depression and flunking eleventh grade, befuddling her patrician mother while going unnoticed by her father, a workaholic federal judge. The only thing Maggie cares about is her cat, Tommi . . . who then disappears somewhere in the walls of her cavernous house. So her search begins -- but Maggie's not even really sure what she's lost, and she has no idea what she'll find. Lost Soul, Be at Peace is the continuation of Maggie's story from her critically acclaimed memoir Honor Girl, one that brings her devastating honesty and humor to the before and after of depression.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Thrash follows her debut, Honor Girl (2015), with another memoir, this time chronicling a period of intense isolation and depression during her junior year of high school. Riding a wave of apathy and avoiding the demanding work of her AP classes, she aimlessly wanders the four-story house she shares with her emotionally unavailable parents. Only when her beloved cat disappears is Thrash pushed into action, but her search soon takes on a broader and more deeply felt meaning as she learns more about her family. Thrash's distinctive style, drawn with pen and watercolor pencil, is simple and straightforward. Faces are predominantly expressionless with large-eyed blank stares, but the panels are not without emotion, and the horror-tinged dream sequences are vivid and unsettling. Although the emotional weight of this memoir can feel relentless, much of the tension is resolved toward the end, and readers are left with a hopeful conclusion. This should resonate with readers looking for unusual realistic fiction that doesn't shy away from difficult themes.--Summer Hayes Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In a follow-up to her debut graphic memoir Honor Girl, Thrash chronicles her junior year at a posh Atlanta prep school, adding a magical bent. Maggie's already wrestling with plummeting grades, depression, her lesbian identity, and her self-absorbed parents. Then her cat, Tommi, disappears and she discovers a secret hallway in her home-and within it, a thoughtful and determined boy her age named Tommy, who looks ghostly but seems real. Their conversations reveal a world Maggie has never seen. Tommy digs ditches to make money for college, and he doesn't know what a Chinese restaurant is. Her life looks just as foreign to him: when she chooses a college by pointing to one in a guidebook, oblivious to its cost, he says, "Wow. Life is just that easy for you, isn't it?" Thrash's bone-dry observational humor stays provocative ("In the South... Democrats go bird hunting while Republicans go deer hunting"), and her rugged draftsmanship and solid toolbox of visual storytelling techniques can handle any emotional register with honesty: teen ennui; cold exchanges with her parents; angry jabs at the rich, bigoted white boys at her school; and the chilling dreams that haunt Maggie's nights.
