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 was guaranteed to love this book just from the velvety cover. This book is full of adorable, cute, quick comic strips that are extremely relatable.

The only downside to this graphic novel is that I have already seen several of the comics from this book online being shared through social media. While they are just as adorably drawn seeing them again, I was hoping for more new artwork in the book format.

I definitely recommend this book because it is an adorable quick read that pretty much anyone would love.

  1. I’ve seen some of these comics floating around facebook, so it’s a shame that it appears the more popular ones are already “out there.” I read a review of this one not too long ago, and she felt that the topics of the book were a bit jumbled, and would have liked similar topics/themes grouped together… Not sure if this bothered you like it did her?
