It’s time to attend her cousin’s quince party, but Marlene hates going to the salon with her Mom to get her hair done because it hurts to get her curls combed, washed, and straightened. No matter how hard Marlene tries, her hair always manages to look frizzy afterwards, and it upsets her Mom because it’s expensive to get her hair done. Will Marlene learn how to deal with her hair and accept her natural curls?

First off, I really enjoyed this relatable story. Why does having curly hair mean it’s bad hair and having straight hair means it’s good hair? It shouldn’t be that way. I feel bad for Marlene because everyone keeps telling her she has bad hair just because she has curly hair. Marlene should be able to wear her naturally curly hair however she likes. I’m glad Marlene’s Tía Ruby is so cool and understanding and helps her with her hair.

Don’t be fooled by a story about hair, Frizzy is an awesome graphic novel, and I recommend it to readers who are struggling to accept things they don’t like about themselves.
