The Edge of Seventeen

I once read a four panel long comic strip about an Indiana Jones type adventurer on his quest for the gem of truth. This is the exchange that follows upon discovering it.

Explorer: At long last I have found it. The crystal which only utters truth!

Crystal: Some of your problems are your fault.

Explorer: Ok wow you little jerk, you don’t know me.

The Edge of Seventeen is a unique high-school coming of age comedy not because of its R rating or the splendid performance given by Hailee Steinfeld as lead protagonist Nadine. It is unique because it is not afraid to admit that teenagers can sometimes be assholes, designers of the drama that engulfs them.
