If you're floundering in life, striking out in love, struggling to pay the rent, and worried about it all -- you're in luck! World Champion Worrier and Expert Insomniac Gemma Correll is here to assure you that it could be much, much worse.

In her hugely popular comic drawings, Gemma Correll dispenses dubious advice and unreliable information on life as she sees it, including The Dystopian Zodiac, Reward Stickers for Grown-Ups, Palm Reading for Millennials, and a Map of the Introvert's Heart. For all you fellow agonizers, fretters, and nervous wrecks, this book is for you. Read it and weep...with laughter

About the Author

Gemma Correll is a young English illustrator, cartoonist, and generally quite small person. She and her trusty pug sidekicks, Bella and Mr. Norman Pickles, will soon be leaving the land of their births for a new life in the very large country of America. Wish them luck!
