Totally amusing, quirky and down right enjoyable in every way, The Isobel Journal from Isobel Harrop is a fresh and honest take on the teenage years.
The perfect addition to any teenager's bookshelf for sure!
Organised around three central themes; Me; Friends, Otters, College & Art, plus Love, Isobel keeps her readers amused with her sketches and observations.
Isobel is a teenager, she lives at her home with Dad, her step-mum and three siblings. 'Underwear shopping at the supermarket with Dad' is embarrassing, even more so when he's been 'walking around with a feather in his hair all day'
Isobel loves 'drawing things that I see', and thankfully this journal is full of her great observations.
Filled with sketches, quirky comments and pictures she captures snapshots of days, along with wonderfully random thoughts and opinions in a stream of consciousness that is delightfully entertaining.
'Watching adults use the internet ... is very, very painful.'
Isobel captures that shy awkwardness of friendships and 'fitting in', whilst embracing individuality and freedom.
'Be your own best friend.'
Isobel's Journal is a visual delight, capturing a unique voice.
At times funny, at times poignant, at times heart breaking (that breakup *sigh*) this fresh journal captures a little bit of everything ... making it all seem just that little bit normal.
