Overview

Our girlfriends are the coolest people we know-but they can also be the angriest, craziest, gloomiest, and most disenchanted people we've ever encountered! Friendship between women can be complicated. But who else to expose both the light and dark side of this delicate relationship but the gang of Angry Little Girls-the spunky, mouthy, comic characters who speak out with humor and frankness about the issues girls care about. These edgy little dames tell it exactly how it is: that true friends enrich our lives in priceless ways (even when they are being annoying!). A great gift to get that special (and sometimes irritating) friend in your life.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Lee created Kim, the angry little Asian girl, for a brief cartoon that was a response to insulting Asian characters in other cartoons. In this collection of her weekly strip, she expands the idea to include a bunch of girls of different races. The book aims for wry humor and occasionally achieves it, as when Xyla, the gloomy girl, says, "The thought of suicide is what keeps me alive." But actual laughs are rare. Lee's minimal drawing style recalls Peanuts, Life in Hell and South Park, and she tries to emulate their tone. Like Peanuts, she gives her child characters adult neuroses, cynical worldviews and a touch of sadness. But her plain approach never reaches that strip's subtlety. Nor does her satire come close to Life in Hell, which at its best was relentless about the state of love, work and childhood in the modern world. Instead, we have a trifle that seems too timid to say much about anything, ironically packaged with a hard cover and heavy, full-color glossy pages. (Apr.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

This book is a way to escape from whatever your environment is. It's a good laugh!! People with good sense of humor will enjoy the collection. I've given this book to students who are reluctant to read and just enjoy it.

I got this book for Christmas and I love it! I read through the whole thing before I fell asleep Christmas night. The characters are hilarious, the scenes are funny and topics are creative. It plays a lot on stereotypes which may offend some....but not me!! It isn't hard hitting literature but it is super funny! I say buy it!
