Off Her Facebook, by Rob Windsor, author & Jo Stroud, illustrator (graphic novel)

This unflinching and moving drama explores the effects on a family as they try to cope with the father’s descent into alcoholism.

Younger sibling Tim retreats further and further, while his older sister Laura reacts in the opposite way, staying out until all hours binge drinking with her friend Suzie.

When mum, Kate, finally confronts dad, Ed, about his drinking problem, relationships between them all begin to crumble severely, culminating in a shocking row that changes everything.

Ed begins to address his issues and comes to a mutually supportive agreement with Laura as they tackle their demons together. However, he gives in to his craving one night and can’t be there when Laura desperately needs him; the consequences rock the entire family to the core.

Can Ed ever earn Laura’s forgiveness and can he ever forgive himself?

5 reviews for Off Her Facebook, by Rob Windsor, author & Jo Stroud, illustrator (graphic novel)

  1. A beautifully illustrated and written book about addiction and the devastation it can cause. The author has shown great insight and I would recommend this clever story to anyone touched by addiction or those interested in the subject. It was also lovely to read a book laid out in such an imaginative and descriptive way.

  2. A beautifully drawn graphic novel which handles the sensitive subject of alcoholism and teenage drinking with sensitivity and compassion. A family begins to fragment as father Ed’s alcoholism takes its toll; 18 year old daughter Laura escapes by going out and binge drinking herself. As the family members try to address the issues and stay together, a terrible incident threatens all they have worked for. Prepare to be haunted – these characters will stay with you for a long time.

  3. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. On all counts! Not only the fantastic graphics but the sensitive area of Alcoholism brought to light . A must read for parents and teenagers struggling with this very personal problem. Well done, and all secondary schools should have this in their library!

  4. A cautionary tale for our time, beautifully written and illustrated. A powerful teaching resource.

  5. A story that any child of an alcoholic parent will engage with and find empathetic peace within; you are not alone.
