I won an arc of this on Goodreads and I’m SO glad I did because I might have put off buying it and that would have been a tragedy.
Jenny Lawson is so real and unfiltered and relatable, and I’ve loved her writing for years. As someone who also suffers from depression (but the bipolar kind) and anxiety there is so much here that makes me go yes, I understand that on a very deep level. But also Jenny has the funniest stories and the craziest interactions with people and I love it because this book was basically alternating between deeply resonating and making me laugh uncontrollably out loud.
I picked it up the instant it arrived in the mail and hardly put it down until I finished it the next day it was so good. It’s funny and heartbreaking and emotional and inspirational and I relate so hard.
Jenny Lawson says the things all of us with mental illness think but might not have the courage to say out loud. And sometimes they need to be said and shared.
