A diary in comics form, Roberts's book collects snippets from eight years of her daily life, capturing exasperating and hysterical moments of mothering, friendship and more.--New York TimesLittle is off-limits here as Roberts (literally, visually) bares all, certain to induce welcome nods of utter understanding from many readers.--Shelf Awareness "I love the way... Keiler Roberts use[s] diary comics to endow small, throwaway moments with the dignity and weight of larger ones."--Liana Finck, The New York Times "Her work gives off a kind of radical stillness. It always lowers my blood pressure... Keiler Roberts is my new hero."--Christopher Borrelli, The Chicago Tribune
