Review quote

"Hand to teens who want words of wisdom from a peer and who enjoy comics."--School Library Journal "[Chrostin's comics are] so on point it hurts."--Comedy Central UK, http: // "De Witte's message is simple but powerful. She wants to remind everyone with her comics that it's OK to feel like you're a total mess sometimes. That's something we can all relate to."--Upworthy, http: // "Chrostin . . . is a character to be reckoned with. From her obsession with snacks to her passive attention to beauty standards, Chrostin is seriously all of us just trying to (occasionally) win at life.", http: // "[Chrostin's] highly relatable situations have made her every girl's best friend on Instagram."--Bored Panda, http: // "The Ultimate Survival Guide to Being a Girl is jam-packed with amusing anecdotes and genuinely helpful advice for young women navigating the precarious teenage years."---Josh Shipp, author of The Teen's Guide to World Domination
