I reached for this one after hearing Netflix was going to make a series out of it. To be honest, you can skip it. It has very similar vibes to The Diary of a Teenage Girl, which I didn’t love that much either. I am Not Okay with This follows Sydney who is an angst-y 15 year-old trying to figure out her adolescence while also having the ability to cause pain and/or make things explode with her mind? I don’t know, I just felt like the story was trying to do too many things, which just left me wanting more detail. Maybe the show helps fill in some of those blanks, and provides more consistency overall, but for now I would say go for something else.

Well this was not what I expected. The reviews for this graphic novel were very good. And this does indeed "captures the frustration...things won't get better when you get older." I can't hate the book. It's raw and real and lonely. It's well done, well written and illustrated, and does go a long way in capturing the bleak feeling of adolescence and adulthood. The moments that Sydney has with her mother are fantastic. But in the end, it's just too bleak for me. Too little hope in this to inspire me to anything other than feeling empty and down. I don't not recommend it, but read it with caution.
