Author: Sarah Andersen
Series: Sarah's Scribbles
Book #: 2
Once again Miss Andersen has made me feel like I'm not alone. I actually believe she's a copy of myself or at least found a way into my brain and is making comics about me.
I have struggled with self-esteem, socializing and depression for most of my life so I really related with the chapter called "I don't know how to be a person" because, you guessed it, I don't know how to be a person. I am not good at making conversation or maintaining friendships.
The way she describes overthinking, being a female, trying to be more social are completely relatable to me, but still made me laugh and think that maybe it's ok to be the way I am. Also she makes a good point of trying to see certain situations as normal instead of incredibly embarassing, for instance awkward silences. Maybe they don't need to be so awkward after all.
Of course, I didn't start realizing these things after reading this book. On the contrary, I already knew all of them but it's good to see that I'm not the only one thinking about it since these things are not discussed on a day to day basis between people. Also it's good for people who are not socially awkward to read and maybe sympathize a little.
The art was still on point in comparison with the first book. Sarah has a unique way of making incredible simplistic scribbles (see what I did there? AH!) look artistic and most importantly, funny.
All in all it was a good read and I would recommend it to pretty much everyone.
