"From Teen Choice Award-nominated comedian and vlogger Gabbie Hanna, known on YouTube as The Gabbie Show, an astounding debut poetry collection that captures the essence of what it means to come of age in today's world. Gabbie Hanna disarms the sacred and elevates the mundane in this exhilarating debut collection of illustrated poems. Ranging from the sing-song rhythms of children's verses and a sophisticated confessional style, Gabbie explores the emotionally charged space between childhood and womanhood, revealing her own longings, obsessions, and insecurities along the way. Adultolescence heralds the arrival of an artist with a magical ability to connect through alienation, bury truth bombs within observations about pizza cravings and social media, and detonate wickedly funny jokes between moments of existential dread. You'll turn to the last page because you get her, and you'll return to the first page because she gets you"--

I highly recommend this book of poetry. Some of the poems are silly, but a lot of them are surprisingly deep and touching.
