Do you love networking to advance your career? Is adulthood an exciting new challenge for which you feel fully prepared? Ugh. Please go away. These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Like any great comedian, Andersen pokes at the heart of humanity and finds hilarity in those special moments that make you ask, “Why me?” I laughed aloud to find I’m not the only one who’s ever tried on a dress that was too small, only to become helplessly cocooned in the thing as I strived to pu...

Calling all introverts! Sarah Anderson shares her quirky insights on everyday interactions, observations on life, and the silly insecurities that go along with them. This collection of comics is a quick, fun read for anyone who sometimes doesn’t feel quite “grown up” yet.

So relatable!

For all those fans of Sarah's Scribbles, this cute collection talks about the challenges Sarah faces in adult life.
She discusses staying up too late and having trouble getting up the next morning. My favourite was not wanting to get up on cold winter mornings and being excited to come home and get into comfy pjs.

A graphic novel about a cartoon and her struggling to be an adult. It really shows all the horrible things that come with being an adult like socializing, planning for the future, having a normal sleep schedule etc. It's a cute and quick read. Rating 5 out 5 stars.

To all the introverts out there, you will find a comrade in Sarah Anderson. In her short strips, she frankly shares her insight and feelings about everyday situations, especially those awkward, terrifying moments where one has to "socialize". With her boogey-eyed "scribbles" she makes light of her adult life, and adult-related topics like work, relationships, and body concerns. For those who understand, you will find yourself bursting out in laughter on more than one occasion. Many of the strips refer to the female experience, so women in particular will enjoy this collection of the webcomic series Sarah's Scribbles. Adulthood is certainly a myth.

If you enjoy the work of Allie Brosh, you will love Sarah Andersen's just as much. Smile, smirk, and giggle your way through her honest, quirky observations on women, life, and the nonsensical insecurities that go along them (all the while feeling secretly relieved that there is someone else out there like you!)

Love these comics! I would go "me" with almost every one. If you're a fan of "Sarah's Scribbles" I recommend buying this/borrowing it from the library to support the artist's work. If you're a really huge fan, buy this so you can have your own copy on hand for whenever adulthood gets you down. Haha, I wouldn't mind if the artist drew a comic on escaping reality by reading her comic or a collection of them (like this book).

This book is so relatable! As I was reading through I was going, "Oh my gosh! YES!" or laughing really hard because it was all true! Great read!

I absolutely loved this graphic novel! It was fun to see myself reflected in the little snips. Highly recommended for a laugh.
