Synopsis:

This illustrated gift book of short comics illuminates author Debbie Tung's experience as an introvert in an extrovert’s world. Presented in a loose narrative style that can be read front to back or dipped into at one’s leisure, the book spans three years of Debbie's life, from the end of college to the present day. In these early years of adulthood, Debbie slowly but finally discovers there is a name for her lifelong need to be alone: she’s an introvert. The first half of the book traces Debbie...

Alicia's notes:

If you are an introvert you have to read this graphic novel/ comic!! I loved it, it got me nodding like if I was listening to my favorite song. It made me laugh and feel connected. The stories Debbie tells are mostly 1 page long divided in panels and show all kinds of "introvert struggles" she has faced along the years; as a college student, working adult, girlfriend and then wife of an extrovert, plus all the hassles of adulting while trying to fit in the world. Even though each mini story is individual, there is a chronological order and her shift in perspective is noticeable. At first everything feels like a struggle and she pushes herself to fit in and act extroverted while feeling alienated from the world. Then, as she discovers she is an introvert and that there is nothing wrong with her, she starts to accept herself. By the end of the book, it is clear that the struggles will continue, but she no longer tries to be someone she is not and embraces her true introverted self. The illustrations are monochromatic and really cute. I like Debbie's drawing style, it is pleasing to the eye, without too much detail but enough to catch the expressions and the general mood of each story.

I cant recommended this enough for all introverts; you will find yourself in most, if not all, pages of this book. For those with an introvert partner, friend or family member, before gifting this book to your loved one, read it first! and then, let them know you read it, or better yet, read it together. I believe there is no greater gift than knowing that there is someone out there who truly understands and accepts you as you are
