Selected as a 2020 LGBTQIA+ Graphic Novel for Young Readers by Publishers Weekly

"When I was in school, everyone got to a certain age where they became interested in talking about only one thing: boys, girls and sex. Me though? I was only interested in comics."

Growing up, Rebecca assumes sex is just a scary new thing they will ''grow into'' as they get older, but when they leave school, start working and do grow up, they start to wonder why they don''t want to have sex with other people.

In this brave, hilarious and empowering graphic memoir, we follow Rebecca as they navigate a culture obsessed with sex - from being bullied at school and trying to fit in with friends, to forcing themself into relationships and experiencing anxiety and OCD - before coming to understand and embrace their asexual identity.

Giving unparalleled insight into asexuality and asexual relationships, How To Be Ace shows the importance of learning to be happy and proud of who you are.

Rebecca Burgess is a full-time autistic illustrator who identifies as asexual. Their comics have featured in The Guardian, and they love telling stories. How To Be Ace is their first book.
