"A collection of humorous essays on what it's like to be unabashedly awkward in a world that regards introverts as hapless misfits, and Black as cool ... [from] Issa Rae, the creator of the Shorty Award-winning ... series The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl"-- Provided by publisher.
Really Enjoyable submitted by evie2017 on August 25, 2017, 6:29pm From page 1, I was hooked! Others compared this book to Mindy Kaling's "Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me?", saying ABG was a close second. However I liked Issa Rae's book quite a bit more! Her stories of growing up are painfully relatable and her humorous and honest voice shines through. I took this book on a couple road trips and it made the hours fly by!
Painfully funny submitted by suttonp on June 24, 2022, 4:34pm What a funny, awkward and honest book. She is very relatable and yet I learned a lot about her personal story which broadened my perspective. Strongly recommend
