"Adulting meets Hyperbole and a Half in this witty, starkly honest, and absolutely on-point book of essays and illustrations on the realities of growing up and finding yourself. Mari Andrew started doodling when she worked at a bakery--she took some license with the display case labels. When customers noticed and began telling her the drawings brightened their days, Mari realized she could use that hobby to connect with people. She hit a professional rough patch in her late 20s and began to chronicle her work on Instagram. Nearly overnight, she became a sensation. Now when Mari Andrew posts something new, the Internet rejoices. This book is organized by universal themes of becoming an adult--for example, loss, adventure, ambition. Within each chapter, Mari shares her personal experiences in never-before-seen essays, accompanied by spreads of her signature illustrations, 90 percent of which are brand new. Readers are bound to see some of themselves in this book, whether seeking advice on how to handle growing up, or just looking for a friend who can commiserate"-- Provided by publisher.

If you like "Sarah's Scribbles" by Sarah Andersen, then this might be a graphic novel you would enjoy! Many the author's artistic diagrams made me chuckle because they are so honest and hilarious (especially with regards to the dating world). The author also discusses many of her traveling adventures.

Andrew's life story is an example of how life zig-zags and it is told through a mix of written stories and relateable doodles. I loved the doodles so much that I've started to follow her on Instagram (@bymariandrew) to stay up to date with her doodles/reflections on life.

Cute very simple pen and watercolour illustrations (designed to look good on a cell phone screen); collection of scenes rather than a anovel with a story; boy crazy author gives light self help advice; boring; general; repetitive; for teenage audience.
