Reviews

★ "Debut author Vivat writes and illustrates a funny, neurotic, and delightful girl with a heart as big as her worries. The extensively illustrated novel packs a punch with fresh, lively pencil-and-ink drawings and lettering that set each mood perfectly."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Vivat's funny, quick-moving debut skips along even faster thanks to the endearing doodles that appear throughout, punctuating Abbie's travails with chibi-esque emotional outbursts featuring flailing limbs, speed lines, and exaggerated typography."--Publishers Weekly
"Abbie's phobias and worries are charmingly depicted in this heavily illustrated hybrid novel....share this title with fans of Jeff Kinney's "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series and anyone who will appreciate rooting for a witty underdog."--School Library Journal
"Debut author Vivat's generously interspersed, animated cartoon illustrations incorporate abundant witty touches and commentary and often extend the main text..."--Booklist Online
"Newcomer Vivat's novel, with its hyperbolic text and superabundant adrenaline-filled cartoon drawings...has plenty of appeal, but it's the clever plot that gives the story depth."--The Horn Book
"Abbie's wisecracks and observations, coupled with her remarkable gift for hyperbole, will keep readers laughing, while her challenges will have them relating. It's an amusing romp perfect for those with their own concerns about the middles."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Honest, sweet, and laugh-out-loud funny."--Brightly
"This one is a great gift for an elementary school grad." (cited as 1 of "10 Next Reads for Kids Who Love Raina Telgemeier")--Brightly
