‘Her skilled scribblings … give you the strength to carry on’ Felicity Morse, iNews
‘The most heartbreaking, incredible book’ Phoebe Waller-Bridge, writer and star of Fleabag
‘Heartfelt, raw … moving and clever. A tremendous book Anne Cater
‘Above all, it’s just so completely human’ Stylist

If you’ve ever looked around and thought, ‘What is going on? Who am I? When is it dinner?’, or maybe you haven’t found a way to explain why you are currently melting into a puddle of your sadness, or if you just want to see a shark called Dave I drew this one time, then this book, filled with drawings about all the terrible and strange and hilarious things life can do at you, will almost certainly be something you’ll probably enjoy.


Opening up about her own struggles with mental health, Ruby draws about everything from depression, body image and eating disorders to anxiety, low self-esteem and working out how to be a ‘grown up’ in the most inverted comma-y sense of the word.


Above all, it's just so completely human

Her [Ruby Elliot] skilled scribblings are so vulnerable, yet they give you the strength to carry on
Felicity Morse, i News
Her drawings, and her words are heartfelt, raw, sometimes difficult to read, but so very moving and clever. This is a tremendous book and Ruby Elliot really is absolutely wonderful.
