it was amazing

Sampsell offers suppressed emotion in short, compressed images of what has passed for "ordinary life" in the weird, mixed-up lives of so many American kids coming of age. There's a bleakness and a comedy side-by-side. Isn't that life in the suburbs?
Also, this book becomes offers an emotional reminder of what life was like before, say, social media, with a particular glimpse at loneliness, alienation, and what it means to find community.
