I Was A Teenage Mormon Zine
This one of my all time favorite zines, and I'll admit, I'm a little biased due to the fact that I spent 12 years in Utah and have my own personal feeling about the Mormon church as an outsider. But, this is the story of Caitlin and her personal experiences with the Mormon Church. It reads as a biography drawing you in to her life and her perspective as she treks through Mormonism and all of its social and familial quirkiness. All the talk of missionaries, the "Heavenly Father", Jell-O salads, and baptisms for the dead really helped create the world she lived in. I loved being able to see her grow and process the world around her as she shares her life on the pages. This is less of a theological deconstruction and more of a personal narrative meets sociological look at Mormon culture through the eyes of an intelligent young woman.
