This short, relatable little memoir is focused on the struggles with anxiety and the tiny ways things can get better. I appreciated the author's ability to give voice to these deeply personal struggles in a way that makes a reader feel less alone. It's a quick read (I finished it in an afternoon), and I would recommend it to anyone who experiences anxiety and/or depression. ( )

Real Rating: 2.5* of five

I confess: I added this because Rob, my Young Gentleman Caller, is having some issues that this book addresses. I'd hoped that it would offer some gentle guidance.

Was I ever misreading the room.

I got an angry blast for being condescending and insulting his taste, coupled with a scathing take-down of its wibbly wobbly thinking about what constitutes dating, when to get theraputic help, and deafening silence on some significant issues I'm sternly enjoined not to discuss at all in public. So not so much on the guidance, then.

What led to this problem for him is the author's "sappy" sentimentality, which I put down to the generational divide and my distaste for the entire "you go girl! you got this" cheerleading thing. It looks like that might be less generational than gender based...Rob's roommate rolled his eyes so hard he saw his brain, I was instructed to say since I introduced them to that phrase and they constantly seek opportunities to use it (to my ill-disguised pride).

It's too bad. I'd hoped for a net positive result. I can't give it the requested one star, though, because I'm utterly charmed by the artwork. (Another point where we differed, he hated it.) My point being, please exercise gender bias in making this purchase as a gift. While I didn't loathe it, two males in the target population who disagree on many, many aesthetic things united in their dislike for it. ( )

3.5 Very sweet, relateable, and honest, but I'm a little too old for it. Wish I had read it about four or so years ago. ( )

Hmm. I follow Beth on Instagram and was super-excited to get this as an early reviewer, but I didn't love it and had to push to finish it. Too much with the whole "OMG adulting!" thing. ( )

I was unfamiliar with Beth Evans' work before receiving the book in the mail. I have read several other reviews and I can understand the perspective of feeling understood after reading it. Evans is funny, unpretentious and honest. Any openly shared experience of anxiety and depression helps to increase compassion and release the stigma and shame surrounding the isolating feeling of suffering through mental illness, and this is no exception. My initial reaction of the illustrations was that they were unimpressive and juvenile. But, I admittedly am new to the Instagram comic realm. After looking at Evan's Instagram feed, I see that this is her style. The simple and silly illustrations are meant to shed a bit of humor and light to an otherwise tough subject matter. This was less of a "book" and more of a compilation of a bit of her writing and a bit of her illustrations. I can appreciate that she paid homage to her comic artist roots, however Evans is a talented writer, so at times I felt the illustrations were unneeded and more of a distraction. I have intense respect for the overall message of the book and if it helps even one person feel less alone in their struggle, score it a win for Evans.

I am grateful for LibraryThing and ARC for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )
