Are you a special snowflake? Do you love networking to advance your career? Have you never wasted a fresh new day surfing the internet? Ugh. This book is not for you. Please go away.

Sarah's Scribbles — casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen — confront head-on the horrors, anxiety, and awkwardness of modern adult life. From the agony of holding hands with a gorgeous guy to the yawning pit of hell that is the wifi gone down to the eye-watering pain of eating too-hot pizza because one cannot stand to wait for it to cool down, Sarah fearlessly documents it all.
This is the most relatable book about modern adulthood that I have ever read. This beautiful graphic novel comically illustrates the many silly hardships that women go through in their twenties and beyond. It had me laughing so much and it ultimately made me feel so much better about myself.

The whole book is so lighthearted and fun and it is essential reading for the introverts and book lovers out there who need a hilarious, feel good book. From the first page I was hooked. I love how it isn't afraid to poke fun at the stereotypes of adulthood and it illustrates such a range of experiences, so there is something in here that everyone can relate to.

This page for example just epitomises my life. It's how I feel every morning! I literally could relate to every page and I just cannot sing it's praises enough.

I love Sarah Andersen's sense of humour and art style in this book and I would highly recommend it.
