"Valencia is the fast-paced account of one girl's search for love and high times in the drama-filled dyke world of San Francisco's Mission District. Michelle Tea records a year lived in a world of girls: there's knife-wielding Marta, who introduces Michelle to a new world of radical sex; Willa, Michelle's tormented poet-girlfriend; Iris, the beautiful boy-dyke who ran away from the South in a dust cloud of drama; and Iris's ex, Magdalena Squalor, to whom Michelle turns when Iris breaks her heart."--Online description.

Was a fun crazy ride through the author's life in the 90s in the San Francisco lesbian scene. Contains some triggering topics like suicide, sudden deaths, self harm, hard drugs, and witnessing physical abuse from cops. I was hanging on every word because it's so fast paced and as a young queer myself I found it relatable. Wasn't a huge fan of the mild transphobia in the last few chapters (the characters play a game of guessing who is trans in a Cafe which is rude, no trans person wants to be your entertainment or spectacle). I'm still giving it 4 stars though for being a source of comfort while dealing with similar chaos Michelle Tea goes through and knowing that I'm not the only one who is dealing with things like that.
