High School is the revelatory and unique coming-of-age story of Sara and Tegan Quin, identical twins from Calgary, Alberta, who grew up at the height of grunge and rave culture in the nineties, well before they became the celebrated musicians and global LGBTQ icons we know today. While grappling with their identity and sexuality, often alone, they also faced academic meltdown, their parents’ divorce, and the looming pressure of what might come after high school. Written in alternating chapters from both Tegan's and Sara’s points of view, the book is a raw account of the drugs, alcohol, love, music, and friendship they explored in their formative years. A transcendent story of first loves and first songs, High School captures the tangle of discordant and parallel memories of two sisters who grew up in distinct ways even as they lived just down the hall from each another. This is the origin story of Tegan and Sara.… (mais)

Interesting read. It's easy to tell that they are both being completely honest in all the topics they discuss. Maybe Tegan & Sara are bigger than I think are but when I saw that they had a book, I was immediately interested. Just because they happen to both be gay, the subject of sexuality is talked about with the same frequency as if they were discussing a heterosexual relationship. But, if you happen to be struggling with your sexuality or afraid to come out to the people around you, I strongly recommend taking the time to read this book. It was also cool because it made some rock stars like the 2 of them to write a book and seem so relatable to a lot of the feelings and thoughts they both share. I would like to know what a hardcore T&S fan thinks about this book, 5 stars because I couldn't find any reason to rank them any lower for any reason. ( )

I'm a couple years younger than Tegan and Sara, but otherwise I could relate to much of their high school years. I had the same clothes, the same awkwardness, the same hair, and the same taste in music. I was also relentlessly bullied and had very few friends and no social life. (My mom once begged me to go out and party.) Of course, I did not follow that up by becoming internationally famous.

Perhaps my rampant ambivalence about my youth contributed to my ambivalence about this memoir. The bad decisions, the petty drama, the feelings of adulthood at age 16... none of this is anything I enjoyed in my own life or wanted to revisit in others. ( )

The sister duo known as Tegan and Sara take alternating chapters to tell their memoirs based on their high school years, which cover both their personal lives and the start of their band.

I've been a fan of their music for a good while now, so it was interesting to get a glimpse of their discovery of music, their relationship with one another, and their experiences and struggles in surviving high school and in discovering and settling into their sexuality. Although they were quite a bit wilder than I ever was at that age (not that that's saying much, to be honest), I think I would have very much identified with their stories as a teen; I certainly enjoyed and appreciated it as a non-teen, too.

I loved this!! Highly recommended if you're a Tegan and Sara fan especially of course. I in particular recommend the audiobook, which is read by Tegan and Sara and includes snippets of their recordings from high school.

The book is engaging, vividly written, and provides a welcome depiction of Real Queer People coming to understand themselves, as well as teen/sibling experiences in general. ( )

Soooo that's how the other half lives, huh?

This memoir goes through Tegan and Sara's teen lives: endless parties and drug trips, girlfriends, coming out (sort of), and finding their music - and miraculously succeeding with it. While it wasn't the most outrageous thing out there (I can only read so many drug stories), I couldn't put down the constant carousel of crushes, confusion, and teen clumsiness in acknowledging - then accepting - their sexuality. There were many parts in there that I could connect to more than any piece of LGBT fiction. (Especially having a sibling who seems to be 'copying' your sexuality.)

While I've mainly just admired these two for being Canadians Who Actually Did The Thing, I tore through it, so I think this will really be perfect for fans - seeing how they got their start not exactly by being scrappy and ruthless, but by being determined, supported by their family and friends, and just damn talented (and with a very good but now-incomprehensible system of recording things onto cassettes).
