The Summer of Love
In 1996, her first graphic novel was Daddy's Girl, published by Fantagraphics. It was a semi-autobiographical story dealing with difficult subjects such as rape, and incest. It was nominated for an Ignatz Award and also appeared as #81 in The Comics Journal's "Top 100 Comics list" in February 1999.
In 2002, her new graphic novel was The Summer of Love, released by Drawn and Quarterly. It was also partly based on Drechsler's own experiences, dealing with typical teenage experiences such as alienation, confusion, and anger.
