Author Ramsey Beyer

Zest Books salutes “Back to School Season” with the publication of the graphic memoir Little Fish: A Memoir from a Different
Kind of Year
– and by hosting the Little Fish Back to School Blog Tour, September 9 – 30, 2013. This Blog Tour honors students everywhere making the leap to a new school year, as well as anyone who’s ever felt like a “little fish” in a big pond.

Through LiveJournal posts, lists, collages and comic illustrations, author Ramsey Beyer artfully chronicles her journey of transition in Little Fish from small town high school student in Michigan to college freshman at a bustling big city East Coast art school. And just as her book tells a deeply personal, entertaining, and insightful coming-of-age story of the passage from childhood to independence, every new school year brings new jitters, goals, and adventures. It’s not just a new school year that can make us feel like a little fish—many life transitions can.
