Comedian Gabbie Hanna brings levity to the twists and turns of modern adulthood in this exhilarating debut collection of illustrated poetry.
In poems ranging from the singsong rhythms of children’s verses to a sophisticated confessional style, Gabbie explores what it means to feel like a kid and an adult all at once, revealing her own longings, obsessions, and insecurities along the way. Adultolescence announces the arrival of a brilliant new voice with a magical ability to connect through alienation, cut to the profound with internet slang, and detonate wickedly funny jokes between moments of existential dread. You’ll turn to the last page because you get her, and you’ll return to the first because she gets you.

Anyone who says that this is “bad” doesn’t realize poetry is very breathable and can be whatever you want it to be
Not really poetry
I appreciate Gabbie experimenting with her emotions and expressing it through poetry and a new medium. But Twitter-esque one liners with random line breaks isn’t poetry. Being generic does not equal being relatable.
