BookAre 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.

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.

I’m sure you’ve all seen Sarah Scribbles around the internet. They get posted to Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, everything. They all tell stories of your life. Trust me, you’ll find them all crazy relatable. I don’t know if there are specifically new stories here in this bind up, but there were certainly some I’d never seen before.

To say that I spent half of my time crying with laughter would be a vast understatement. My ribs hurt by the time I was done, I can’t even get over how these comics constantly related to my life. More than once I told a family member “Come read this” or “I’m printing this out and handing it to people.” Just because Sarah Scribbles nailed my life.

This book is so completely worth reading, I can’t begin to tell you. I’m decently sure I need to buy myself several copies so I can give them to friends so they can enjoy the laughter and joy that I got from each and every page of Sarah Scribbles.

I think the best way to end this is with my favorite image (One that’s also in the book)
