This collection of comics won the 2017 Goodreads Choice Award for Best Graphic Novel and Comic and will speak to anyone who has ever struggled with life.

This book includes comics as well as illustrated personal essays from the cartoonist/illustrator. It shows off the highs and lows of life, especially for someone who struggles with self-esteem or prefers to view the world from under a pile of blankets. It reflects on money, school, relationships, and even that special time of month for women. It doesn’t just make light of the bad but also highlights the joy of a trip to the bookstore or seeing a puppy in a sweater. What makes this comic collection so great is how accurate it represents these moments in life in a way that makes you chuckle because you’ve been there and done that. Anyone who has been socially awkward or had self-esteem issues will connect with this book.
