Shel Silverstein for adults. Perfect for those days when you feel like shit and can't muster up the (physical) energy to do anything but lay in bed, or the (mental) energy to love yourself.

Wonderfully therapeutic in its gallows humor and satirization of anxiety.

— From Avery


Comedian Gabbie Hanna brings levity to the twists and turns of modern adulthood in this exhilarating debut collection of illustrated poetry.

In poems ranging from the singsong rhythms of children’s verses to a sophisticated confessional style, Gabbie explores what it means to feel like a kid and an adult all at once, revealing her own longings, obsessions, and insecurities along the way. Adultolescence announces the arrival of a brilliant new voice with a magical ability to connect through alienation, cut to the profound with internet slang, and detonate wickedly funny jokes between moments of existential dread. You’ll turn to the last page because you get her, and you’ll return to the first because she gets you.
