Just when I thought I couldn’t Love Issa anymore. This is a great read!
After watching her show on YouTube and her show on HBO, I decided to purchase this book. It was a great read and A LOT of the things Issa went through in life I did as well. Thank you Issa !
Easy read and very funny! I finished wanted to read more about her life. I hope she writes another book!
Brilliant and relatable
Every person who has ever struggled with not fitting-in needs to read this book. Such a great read that I couldn't put it down! I am an "Awkward Black Girl" too and I always knew I was different but never realized there were others like me. Issa Rae is able to articulate the intricacies of being awkward so well that I sometimes felt like I was reading my about myself. She weaves self-deprecating humor and serious insight and inspiration so effortlessly. I'm 36 and it's taken me so many years to be comfortable in my awkwardness. Reading this book reaffirmed to me that it's okay to be awkward and it's actually even okay to be black and awkward. Can't wait to read more books from Issa Rae.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
As an ABG myself, I haven't read a book that hits so close to home since my 4th grade, Judy Blume days! Thanks for sharing your stories, Issa. Such a relatable, thoroughly entertaining read!
Awkward Black Girl
This book is AMAZING.... I just LOve Issa Rae❤️❤️
I Love her!!!
This book, ur web series, and hbo sitcom is me!!!
This book is so relatable
I could relate to the author so much, especially in regards to fashion, dancing, and early use of the Internet. It was a great read with lots of humor.
I wish it was longer
Oh Issa, I feel as if she is one of my wise under 40 year old aunts. As I am making my way though my senior undergraduate year- reading this book has made me realize that it is berable. I have realized that I have so much ahead of me, I can be funny black female that acknowldges her feminity but does not view it has a con. This book has inspire me to be myself- not the mixed black girl the blak people/ white people or who ever else they think I should be. I will not deny my ethnicites to fit into a box for no one. I will eat 4 slices of pizza and not feel bad about others watching me. I am not at the place where I would like to be in life- but this book has definitely made me realize that 20 years is not the end or the peak of my life. Most importantly I have accepted that I can live my life as the person I was created to be
