Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Her personality and wit shines through her drawings which describe five years of badly paid jobs, drama and heartbreak, friendships, being mother to a dog and vegan cuisine (including recipes!). Over the course of the book we can see the improvement in Georges' illustrations, which look as though they are torn straight out of a sketchbook. What makes this comic so special is how it makes the reader think of how magical the most simplest of actions and ordinary moments can be; such as riding a bike or even having your daily coffee. An unpretentious and endearing example of life as art."  —Mooky Chick

"This collection of Georges’ illustrated journal makes me feel good about life. The matter of fact way she deals with every day happenstance makes me feel better about issues that I usually feel awkward about."  —Belle's Musings & Contemplations

"On the surface, this zine anthology is a huge collection of illustrated journal entries spanning six years of Nicole’s life. She writes about her work, her lovers, places she’s lived, funny things her friends have said, and her beloved dog, Beija. But there’s something deeper here; there’s a theme of almost childlike sincerity. The way she draws herself in a hat with bear ears and her friends surrounded by little hearts, the way she doesn’t gloss over embarrassing or unflattering situations, and the fact that she expresses her feelings when she’s going through rough times instead of pretending it’s no big deal make this zine very down to earth and relatable."—Razorcake
