In a world where what you do defines who you are, Miss Remarkable is having a hard time finding her way. Starting out with goals that are impossibly high, she despairs that nothing she does is ever good enough then vainly seeks guidance from dubious friends, demanding parents, and well-meaning boyfriends, eventually realising that only by listening to herself will she find real happiness. Joanna Dranger's vivid line drawings provide brilliant and hilarious visual metaphors for the kind of anxious uncertainty that plagues overachievers everywhere.
