Gothic Charm School
I just finished this book about 10 minutes ago, and spending the past 3 days on it was soo worth it. It was funny and entertaining, and it was written by a 'real' goth with a 'real' job. It was very down-to-earth and realistic, and her style is sooo amazing. I love real-life cartoon characters. ^_^ She addresses all the issues 'normal' people deal with when it comes to Goths: Are they all depressed and suicidal? What about dangerous murderers? Do they think they're vampires? Are they Satanic? Are they all witches? Is Goth a cult? The way she answers is humorous and gentle, and she gives Goths and other interesting creatures advice on how to deal with those sorts of questions [as well as people touching them and their clothes >.<], along with fashion advice on things such as weddings, family gatherings, and other such social fiddle faddle. This was definitely worth reading, I recommend it to everyone.
