Quiet Girl in a Noisy World
by Debbie Tung
A quiet, humorous autobiographical graphic novel that looks at the life of an introvert. This book focuses on early adulthood: college, falling in love, marriage, finding a job, and fitting in during social situations and at work.
An easy to read comic strip style book with black and white artwork. This simple and cute book was very relatable. I kept nodding my head thinking: I’ve done that, said that, or thought that.
Guy at party: You’re kind of quiet, aren’t you?
Quiet girl thinking: Just smile. Don’t strangle him.
I can’t even count the number of times people have commented on how quiet I am. 100% relatable.
While most of this book depicts a humorous look at an introvert’s life, some things are a little more serious, like the anxiety and self-doubt that a lot of introverts deal with.
Quote from the book:
My outer self: Calm, cheerful, friendly, and easygoing.
My inner self: A mixture of frustration, insanity, and dying on the inside.
An insightful look into an introvert’s life that is a wonderful read for introverts, and the extroverts who love them.
I received an ebook from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
