“'Pure nostalgia.' That’s what we think, at first, when opening Dear Azula, I Have a Crush on Danny Phantom, but immediately we know this book is about how our obsessions easily filter into our own lives. Reading this book you will be completely flayed, wide open, asking yourself what lives inside your own memories, who are you and what have you become. And the book answers: love.”
