As you can tell by the title, this volume takes us back in time to witness the birth of Francine and Katchoo's friendship in high school. The pivotal moment in the story is the same one that introduced us to Francine in the first volume: her singularly embarrassing moment during the school play when good ol' Freddie Femur accidentally disrobes her in front of the entire audience. This time, however, it's not played (entirely) for laughs. Also, at the end of this volume, is Moore's charming parody of Xena: Warrior Princess, with Francine as Xena and Katchoo as her sidekick, Gabrielle (whose secondary position galls Katchoo, of course).
Moore begins this volume brilliantly by contrasting Francine and Katchoo's diametrically opposed upbringings side-by-side. As Francine wakes up bright-eyed in a pristine teenage girl's bedroom to the strains of Bill Haley's "Rock around the Clock," Katchoo simultaneously wakes up in a barren, trash-cluttered room on a bare mattress, smashes her alarm clock into silence, and lights up a cigarette. Thus we learn that Katchoo's had it bad pretty much from the start. If I have only one complaint, it's that Moore doesn't spend nearly enough time with the high school versions of his two protagonists, and the story is over all too quickly.

He has also mentioned his greatest career influence is Peanuts' Charles Schulz. Some of Moore's strip work can additionally be found in his Paradise, Too! publications.
His work has won him recognition in the comics industry, including receiving the Eisner Award for Best Serialized Story in 1996 for Strangers in Paradise #1-8, which was collected in the trade paperback "I Dream of You".
