Really good book with tiny drawings and scraggly writing about how growing up can be crappy when adults are mean.

This isn't quite the book I was expecting it to be.
The artwork is too small and dare I say simple to be appreciated for longer than a glance. The writing is sparse and not very amusing. Honestly, it felt like the author was struggling for ideas a lot of the time and decided that anything would go, so long as it filled the page.
I'm probably more disappointed because I enjoyed Sara Midda's 'Sketchbook from Southern France' so much, and I expected this book to be like that one. It isn't. Don't read
