Bad on Purpose by Hannah Studnick
Drawings by Danni O’Brien
Design by Bella Solorzano
Born from the intersection of deep familial grief and romantic heartbreak, Bad on Purpose serves as a living, breathing tribute to the author’s late twin sister, a brilliant soul taken far too soon. Weaving together elements of autobiography, fiction, and humor, Hannah Studnick deftly beckons the reader into the folds of her bleeding heart with both levity and a disarming sincerity as she reflects on the ways she’s been left behind. Where post-traumatic stress and growth meet to walk hand in hand, this book is meant for those who have experienced tremendous loss and those who surely will; that is to say, everyone.
