Adulthood is a myth confronts 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. Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah's total frankness on extremely personal issues such as body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and consistently hilarious.

Cute, funny, and very relatable.

This short humorous classic "single page" comic collection pokes good clean fun at the many challenges that all introverted kids experience when transitioning into the responsibilities of adulthood. Sarah resolutely claims that this book is "totally not autobiographical." We don't believe you, Sarah.

Highly recommend this (and its two sequels) if you are a millenial, an introvert, a writer/artist/creative and/or a college student. Sarah's drawings are hilarious in their truthfulness.

A collection of comic with some funny and some thoughtful insight into what it means (or doesn't mean) to be an adult.

Found this collection really lackluster, a lot of the humor relies on simply putting things on the page that some people might find relatable. There aren't many punch lines or unique comedic insights to help hold the book up. There are so many four panel comic collections out there that are hilarious unfortunately this one falls really flat. Its not the worst read just not something I would ever reccomend

Laugh-out-loud hilarious, has a lot of comics that introverts will be able to relate to.

Sarah's introvert humor resonated the most with me. A philosophical tribute to adulthood and the child we may or may have not left behind. Loved her bunny companion and her black cat. Extra marks for our local publisher. Very entertaining!

As a fellow introvert, I see a number of my own quirks and foibles mirrored in Sarah Andersen's comics, which is pleasing and validating in some way. This was quick, leisurely, charming entertainment, perfect for a demanding time of year.

This comic had me actually laughing out loud. These strips are short but very witty and if you are a millennial, might find them particularly relatable.
