Queer Book Club – Jonesy

Jonesy

Sunday, June 24

5:15 PM – 6:15 PM

Please join us for our first meeting of the ABC QBC!

Jonesy is a self-described “cool dork” who spends her time making zines nobody reads, watching anime, and listening to riot grrrl bands and 1D simultaneously. But she has a secret nobody knows. She has the power to make people fall in love! Anyone. With anything. There’s only one catch-it doesn’t work on herself. She’s gonna have to find love the old-fashioned way, and in the meantime, figure out how to distract herself from the real emotions she inevitably has to face when her powers go wrong.

(W) Sam Humphries (A) Caitlin Rose Boyle

Covering: Jonesy vol 1
