A joint memoir from Canadian musicians and twin sisters Tegan and Sara, High School expands the memoir form to include the perspectives of both authors in alternating chapters. Tegan and Sara revisit their high school years, share their experience of coming out as gay in the late 90s and provide insight into the early development of their music.
Deep understanding and compassion of the other is required to write a joint memoir, and delving into Tegan and Sara's relationship as sisters and bandmates is fascinating. The raw emotion of Tegan and Sara's music extends to their honest and enlightening memoir.
