    DUDE WHAT A TEGAN AND SARA MEMOIR????????? MOVE I'M GAY ...

    Tegan and Sara?s story - identical twins - begins in grade ten - at Crescent Heights High School, in the suburbs of northeast Calgary, Alberta, Canada. ( just blocks away from where our daughter lives now). I kept seeing this book pop up, and was curious. The library had it availa...

    Whether you're a lifelong Tegan & Sara fan or not, the book is fantastic. Technically could exist in the 'sex, drugs, and rock and roll' category of musician memoirs, but there's so much heart, honesty, and keenly accurate accounts of growing up queer and frustratingly hopeful. ...

    Admittedly, I came to this memoir not actually super familiar* (I thought) with the music of Tegan and Sara; however, I AM familiar with, not to mention increasingly, foolishly nostalgic for, the experience of being a self-identified alternative 1990s high schooler. My inner adolesc...

    This immersive, fun memoir, told in 46 short chapters alternating between the viewpoints of Tegan and Sara, gives us the story of how the Canadian indie pop twin sensation came into being: After a short set-up we meet the Quin sisters at the start of grade 10 and follow them until thei...

    Tegan and Sara's High School is divided into five sections: tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade, with shorter sections for the summers in between, and the twins take turns writing the chapters within each section. I'll admit to some initial uncertainty about whether this memoir was for ...

    "We cavorted and coalesced under the microscope of infatuation, making even mundane facts seem riveting and essential. A spectrum of colors and feelings and tastes and a kind of touch that I'd only just figured out existed surged through me. I had never considered what it would be like...

    Last year would have been the 20 year high school reunion for Tegan & Sara, making them two years behind me in age. Their memoir of those years alternates between the sisters as they tell stories of their family life, fighting over friends, discovering their sexuality, finding a mu...

    Almost ten years ago, I asked Sara Quin, of Tegan and Sara, about the way "your songs about relationships never demonize the person you're singing to, or about; there's always a sense of care even in the wake of something painful." She responded, "I think that's very accurate as a s...

    I cannot say enough incredible things about this memoir. For a girl who started listening to Tegan and Sara and met them in a bar when I was 15 and to have this come out now is so incredibly perfect. I will say you have to LISTEN to this book. I felt warm tears running down my cheeks w...

    I devoured this book as I have consumed anything Tegan and Sara since age 16. I enjoyed reminiscing and feeling nostalgic about my own high school years. I think some of the memories are ubiquitous to growing up in the suburbs, gay, or both, like passing notes carefully folded in class...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this journey, written in alternating chapters from the perspective of each sister. A very detailed look into their lives with a focus not only on their individual struggles, but the obstacles they also faced together. Navigating their sexuality, the secrets, relati...

    I've been a superfan for 18 years, and they've made so much art that is so important to me. When I first saw them on MTV at the crack of dawn one day when I was 14 years old it was so profound to me because these where the first queer people, close to my age, that I had ever seen who w...

    As someone who is five months older than Tegan and Sara, I could relate to large portions of this memoir. We grew up on the same music, technology, and fashion. At first, I was a little bummed about how much the Quins talked about doing drugs, but that did not last long. By the end, I ...

    High School centers around an incredibly important time of Tegan's and Sara's lives in which they discovered who they were, grew distant from one another, engaged in high risk behavior, experienced insecurity and shame, began to understand their sexual identities, and started their car...

    This. Was. Perfect. I don?t have much to say besides, if their music has touched your heart and made you not feel so alone in your feelings, you need to read book. Safe to say T&S will be what I?ll be listening to in the car for a while again now. ...

    Juicy, delicious, and queer AF. It is exactly what you want it to be. Tegan and Sara let us in to their high school years: the secrets, the loves, the hurts, the fights, the drugs, the photos, the sex, the music, the songwriting. It?s candid brave loving tenderness wrapped in 350 pag...

    When I think of sex, drugs, rock and roll, Tegan and Sara aren't the first to come to mind, but after reading their memoir about their high school years and rise to fame, well, they prove to have the grit, grime and drug use of any seasoned rock star. Their indie-pop, singer/songwri...

    Soo good!! Read a lot of celebrity memoirs lately and this is by far the best one I?ve ever read. Excellent writing and very interesting to hear two perspectives of the same stories. So sweet and sad and authentic. ...

    This is already feeling quite nostalgic for me. Tegan and Sara may have been born 6 years later, but we both grew up in the 80s/90s alternative music scenes, listening to the anthems of disaffected queer & questioning youth, with easy access to LSD, and the suburbs burning a hole i...

    Juicy, delicious, and queer AF. It is exactly what you want it to be. Tegan and Sara let us in to their high school years: the secrets, the loves, the hurts, the fights, the drugs, the photos, the sex, the music, the songwriting. It?s candid brave loving tenderness wrapped in 350 pag...

    When I think of sex, drugs, rock and roll, Tegan and Sara aren't the first to come to mind, but after reading their memoir about their high school years and rise to fame, well, they prove to have the grit, grime and drug use of any seasoned rock star. Their indie-pop, singer/songwri...

    Soo good!! Read a lot of celebrity memoirs lately and this is by far the best one I?ve ever read. Excellent writing and very interesting to hear two perspectives of the same stories. So sweet and sad and authentic. ...

    This is already feeling quite nostalgic for me. Tegan and Sara may have been born 6 years later, but we both grew up in the 80s/90s alternative music scenes, listening to the anthems of disaffected queer & questioning youth, with easy access to LSD, and the suburbs burning a hole i...

    A memoir? Tegan and Sara? Sign me up! I loved the look into their adolescence and could deeply relate to many parts. This is for fans of Tegan and Sara, people who love memoirs about sex, drugs, and music, and of course, the young queer looking for themselves in wherever they can fin...

    I just want to curl up in bed and cry. This book was so good I have all the feels. ...

    This was such a quick and enjoyable read! Hard to put down at night as you tell yourself "just one more chapter". Sitting with my book felt like sitting with Tegan and Sara and listening to them talk. It's their banter without the concert and their songs in story form. I hope they plan...

    I knew that I would love this book because I have always enjoyed Tegan and Sara?s storytelling both onstage and in interviews. Such a lovely recollection of adolescence during the 1990s. ...

    DUDE WHAT A TEGAN AND SARA MEMOIR????????? MOVE I'M GAY ...

    Tegan and Sara?s story - identical twins - begins in grade ten - at Crescent Heights High School, in the suburbs of northeast Calgary, Alberta, Canada. ( just blocks away from where our daughter lives now). I kept seeing this book pop up, and was curious. The library had it availa...

    Whether you're a lifelong Tegan & Sara fan or not, the book is fantastic. Technically could exist in the 'sex, drugs, and rock and roll' category of musician memoirs, but there's so much heart, honesty, and keenly accurate accounts of growing up queer and frustratingly hopeful. ...

    Admittedly, I came to this memoir not actually super familiar* (I thought) with the music of Tegan and Sara; however, I AM familiar with, not to mention increasingly, foolishly nostalgic for, the experience of being a self-identified alternative 1990s high schooler. My inner adolesc...

    This immersive, fun memoir, told in 46 short chapters alternating between the viewpoints of Tegan and Sara, gives us the story of how the Canadian indie pop twin sensation came into being: After a short set-up we meet the Quin sisters at the start of grade 10 and follow them until thei...

    Tegan and Sara's High School is divided into five sections: tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade, with shorter sections for the summers in between, and the twins take turns writing the chapters within each section. I'll admit to some initial uncertainty about whether this memoir was for ...

    A candid, poignant and insightful coming of age memoir. ? For thoes who don't know Teegan and Sara they are a Canadian Indie pop duo. They are also twin sisters. In High School, their first memoir they recount their own high school experience. Sharing stories that highlight their i...

    oh. my. god. This just became my most anticipated release of 2019. I love Tegan and Sara to death and I cannot wait for this memoir! ...

    Almost ten years ago, I asked Sara Quin, of Tegan and Sara, about the way "your songs about relationships never demonize the person you're singing to, or about; there's always a sense of care even in the wake of something painful." She responded, "I think that's very accurate as a s...

    A candid, poignant and insightful coming of age memoir. ? For thoes who don't know Teegan and Sara they are a Canadian Indie pop duo. They are also twin sisters. In High School, their first memoir they recount their own high school experience. Sharing stories that highlight their i...

    oh. my. god. This just became my most anticipated release of 2019. I love Tegan and Sara to death and I cannot wait for this memoir! ...

    his book is so, so important. Tegan and Sara's writing is beautiful, haunting, and oh-so-relatable. It's those moments as a queer person where you feel doubt, love, longing, regret. It's those moments as a teenager where you live recklessly, make mistakes, yearn for something more t...

    Almost ten years ago, I asked Sara Quin, of Tegan and Sara, about the way "your songs about relationships never demonize the person you're singing to, or about; there's always a sense of care even in the wake of something painful." She responded, "I think that's very accurate as a s...

    I cannot say enough incredible things about this memoir. For a girl who started listening to Tegan and Sara and met them in a bar when I was 15 and to have this come out now is so incredibly perfect. I will say you have to LISTEN to this book. I felt warm tears running down my cheeks w...

    I devoured this book as I have consumed anything Tegan and Sara since age 16. I enjoyed reminiscing and feeling nostalgic about my own high school years. I think some of the memories are ubiquitous to growing up in the suburbs, gay, or both, like passing notes carefully folded in class...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this journey, written in alternating chapters from the perspective of each sister. A very detailed look into their lives with a focus not only on their individual struggles, but the obstacles they also faced together. Navigating their sexuality, the secrets, relati...

    I've been a superfan for 18 years, and they've made so much art that is so important to me. When I first saw them on MTV at the crack of dawn one day when I was 14 years old it was so profound to me because these where the first queer people, close to my age, that I had ever seen who w...

    As someone who is five months older than Tegan and Sara, I could relate to large portions of this memoir. We grew up on the same music, technology, and fashion. At first, I was a little bummed about how much the Quins talked about doing drugs, but that did not last long. By the end, I ...

    High School centers around an incredibly important time of Tegan's and Sara's lives in which they discovered who they were, grew distant from one another, engaged in high risk behavior, experienced insecurity and shame, began to understand their sexual identities, and started their car...

    This. Was. Perfect. I don?t have much to say besides, if their music has touched your heart and made you not feel so alone in your feelings, you need to read book. Safe to say T&S will be what I?ll be listening to in the car for a while again now. ...

    Juicy, delicious, and queer AF. It is exactly what you want it to be. Tegan and Sara let us in to their high school years: the secrets, the loves, the hurts, the fights, the drugs, the photos, the sex, the music, the songwriting. It?s candid brave loving tenderness wrapped in 350 pag...

    When I think of sex, drugs, rock and roll, Tegan and Sara aren't the first to come to mind, but after reading their memoir about their high school years and rise to fame, well, they prove to have the grit, grime and drug use of any seasoned rock star. Their indie-pop, singer/songwri...

    Soo good!! Read a lot of celebrity memoirs lately and this is by far the best one I?ve ever read. Excellent writing and very interesting to hear two perspectives of the same stories. So sweet and sad and authentic. ...

    This is already feeling quite nostalgic for me. Tegan and Sara may have been born 6 years later, but we both grew up in the 80s/90s alternative music scenes, listening to the anthems of disaffected queer & questioning youth, with easy access to LSD, and the suburbs burning a hole i...

    A memoir? Tegan and Sara? Sign me up! I loved the look into their adolescence and could deeply relate to many parts. This is for fans of Tegan and Sara, people who love memoirs about sex, drugs, and music, and of course, the young queer looking for themselves in wherever they can fin...

    I just want to curl up in bed and cry. This book was so good I have all the feels. ...

    This was such a quick and enjoyable read! Hard to put down at night as you tell yourself "just one more chapter". Sitting with my book felt like sitting with Tegan and Sara and listening to them talk. It's their banter without the concert and their songs in story form. I hope they plan...

    I knew that I would love this book because I have always enjoyed Tegan and Sara?s storytelling both onstage and in interviews. Such a lovely recollection of adolescence during the 1990s. ...

    Tegan and Sara?s story - identical twins - begins in grade ten - at Crescent Heights High School, in the suburbs of northeast Calgary, Alberta, Canada. ( just blocks away from where our daughter lives now). I kept seeing this book pop up, and was curious. The library had it availa...

    Whether you're a lifelong Tegan & Sara fan or not, the book is fantastic. Technically could exist in the 'sex, drugs, and rock and roll' category of musician memoirs, but there's so much heart, honesty, and keenly accurate accounts of growing up queer and frustratingly hopeful. ...

    Admittedly, I came to this memoir not actually super familiar* (I thought) with the music of Tegan and Sara; however, I AM familiar with, not to mention increasingly, foolishly nostalgic for, the experience of being a self-identified alternative 1990s high schooler. My inner adolesc...

    DUDE WHAT A TEGAN AND SARA MEMOIR????????? MOVE I'M GAY ...

    Tegan and Sara?s story - identical twins - begins in grade ten - at Crescent Heights High School, in the suburbs of northeast Calgary, Alberta, Canada. ( just blocks away from where our daughter lives now). I kept seeing this book pop up, and was curious. The library had it availa...

    Whether you're a lifelong Tegan & Sara fan or not, the book is fantastic. Technically could exist in the 'sex, drugs, and rock and roll' category of musician memoirs, but there's so much heart, honesty, and keenly accurate accounts of growing up queer and frustratingly hopeful. ...

    Admittedly, I came to this memoir not actually super familiar* (I thought) with the music of Tegan and Sara; however, I AM familiar with, not to mention increasingly, foolishly nostalgic for, the experience of being a self-identified alternative 1990s high schooler. My inner adolesc...

    This immersive, fun memoir, told in 46 short chapters alternating between the viewpoints of Tegan and Sara, gives us the story of how the Canadian indie pop twin sensation came into being: After a short set-up we meet the Quin sisters at the start of grade 10 and follow them until thei...

    Tegan and Sara's High School is divided into five sections: tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade, with shorter sections for the summers in between, and the twins take turns writing the chapters within each section. I'll admit to some initial uncertainty about whether this memoir was for ...

    "We cavorted and coalesced under the microscope of infatuation, making even mundane facts seem riveting and essential. A spectrum of colors and feelings and tastes and a kind of touch that I'd only just figured out existed surged through me. I had never considered what it would be like...

    Last year would have been the 20 year high school reunion for Tegan & Sara, making them two years behind me in age. Their memoir of those years alternates between the sisters as they tell stories of their family life, fighting over friends, discovering their sexuality, finding a mu...

    oh. my. god. This just became my most anticipated release of 2019. I love Tegan and Sara to death and I cannot wait for this memoir! ...

    his book is so, so important. Tegan and Sara's writing is beautiful, haunting, and oh-so-relatable. It's those moments as a queer person where you feel doubt, love, longing, regret. It's those moments as a teenager where you live recklessly, make mistakes, yearn for something more t...

    Almost ten years ago, I asked Sara Quin, of Tegan and Sara, about the way "your songs about relationships never demonize the person you're singing to, or about; there's always a sense of care even in the wake of something painful." She responded, "I think that's very accurate as a s...

    I cannot say enough incredible things about this memoir. For a girl who started listening to Tegan and Sara and met them in a bar when I was 15 and to have this come out now is so incredibly perfect. I will say you have to LISTEN to this book. I felt warm tears running down my cheeks w...

    I devoured this book as I have consumed anything Tegan and Sara since age 16. I enjoyed reminiscing and feeling nostalgic about my own high school years. I think some of the memories are ubiquitous to growing up in the suburbs, gay, or both, like passing notes carefully folded in class...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this journey, written in alternating chapters from the perspective of each sister. A very detailed look into their lives with a focus not only on their individual struggles, but the obstacles they also faced together. Navigating their sexuality, the secrets, relati...

    I've been a superfan for 18 years, and they've made so much art that is so important to me. When I first saw them on MTV at the crack of dawn one day when I was 14 years old it was so profound to me because these where the first queer people, close to my age, that I had ever seen who w...

    As someone who is five months older than Tegan and Sara, I could relate to large portions of this memoir. We grew up on the same music, technology, and fashion. At first, I was a little bummed about how much the Quins talked about doing drugs, but that did not last long. By the end, I ...

    High School centers around an incredibly important time of Tegan's and Sara's lives in which they discovered who they were, grew distant from one another, engaged in high risk behavior, experienced insecurity and shame, began to understand their sexual identities, and started their car...

    This. Was. Perfect. I don?t have much to say besides, if their music has touched your heart and made you not feel so alone in your feelings, you need to read book. Safe to say T&S will be what I?ll be listening to in the car for a while again now. ...
