Critical Reviews

"I couldn't stop smiling as I read this relentlessly relatable book. Phoebe Wahl has created a glittering treasure map of teenage life. She illuminates a year of adolescent longing, discovery, pleasure, and heartbreak. It is deeply sweet, sexy, and true. I wanted it to last forever."--Sophia Glock, creator of the graphic memoir Passport

* "Wahl's distinctive, instantly recognizable art adds humor and heart to each page. . . . An earnest, relatable, and affecting celebration of teenage yearning."--Kirkus, starred review

* "In her emotionally vulnerable YA debut, Wahl (Little Witch Hazel) revisits her high school diaries to deliver a fictional adaptation of her adolescence...skillfully presenting a raw, unfiltered story about growing up and taking risks that will surely resonate."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Filled with sprawling, detailed drawings and comics panels and replete with references to early aughts indie culture, this vividly captures the voice of a teen curious about herself and her future, all in an intimate tone, as if talking to a friend unabashed about what's on her mind."--Booklist

"Phoebe's Diary honestly captures teenage angst, confusion, and the yearning for love and identity. In parts funny and philosophical, it speaks to every person on earth."--Maira Kalman, award-winning and bestselling author, artist, and designer
