Look out, Tegan and Sara fans! The duo will be releasing their first tell-all memoir titled High School where they’ll be spilling all the details on their rise to fame, available on Sept. 24, 2019.
In a statement, they said, “How did you start your band? When did you know that you were gay? What were you like before Tegan and Sara? We have spent 20 years answering those complicated questions with simple answers. Writing High School gives us the opportunity to tell the intricate stories that shaped our relationship as sisters, musicians, and queer girls.”
High School was written in alternating chapters, giving the sisters a chance to give their points of view on a variety of topics. It will provide readers with a “raw account of the drugs, alcohol, love, music, and friendships they explored in their formative years.” This is ultimately the origin story of the global LGBTQ icons Tegan and Sara.
