Are you a special snowflake?
Do you enjoy networking to advance your career?
Is adulthood an exciting new challenge for which you feel fully prepared?
Ugh. Please go away.
This book is for the rest of us. These comics document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas, and wondering when, exactly, this adulthood thing begins. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life.
I first saw Sarah Anderson’s work floating around on social media sites. The arm flappy thing being a reason to love boys hoodies made me laugh because it’s something I do. Dealing with, ugh, people? Being a bookworm? And let’s not forget those relationship goals… It’s like Anderson was drawing these comics just for me.
I didn’t even know there was a book until I stumbled across it on NetGalley, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I promptly curled up with it in bed and happily read along (and grinned, because, really, these comics speak to me!).
Would I recommend it? Oh, yes. I adore this book, and I can’t wait to go out and get a copy to add to my physical bookshelf as well as my digital one.
