Homebody : discovering what it means to be me by Theo Parish
Available for Pre-Order. Publishes 25 April 2024.
The unmissable YA graphic novel Homebody from debut creator Theo Parish - for fans of the global hit Heartstopper and a must read for anyone who's ever felt like they don’t belong.
Hello! I’m Theo. I like cats, Dungeons & Dragons . . . and I’m trans and non-binary.
Theo grew up in a household with a loving family and relaxed gender roles, but the pressures of the outside world to fit into society’s expectations can make life feel, well . . . confusing! Theo knows that there is no one way to be, but inspired by superheroes, role playing games and comic con, they find confidence to rebuild their image in a way that feels truly themselves.
In their debut graphic novel Homebody, author-illustrator Theo Parish takes readers through a beautifully heart lifting story of discovering what it means to live life on your own terms and what it means to feel at home in the world. Ages 12+
‘The most radical act of self love is living authentically in a world that takes every opportunity to squeeze you into a box of someone else’s design.’
