Both sen­si­tive and em­pow­er­ing, Anas­ta­sia Hig­gin­botham’s lat­est in­stall­ment in the Or­di­nary Ter­ri­ble Things se­ries, Tell Me About Sex, Grandma, ad­dresses the stigma and mixed mes­sages re­gard­ing sex­u­al­ity and youth to­day. Clev­erly de­signed col­lage art and beau­ti­fully sim­plis­tic lan­guage in­tro­duce the topic of sex as “an en­ergy, an ac­tion, a con­ver­sa­tion, a rev­e­la­tion,” and open the door in a nat­u­ral way for fur­ther dis­cus­sion and ed­u­ca­tion. Com­pelling themes of self-aware­ness and re­spect are rel­e­vant for boys and girls and young men and women every­where.
