An instant New York Times bestseller, Booki Vivat's Frazzled is the first installment of a funny middle grade graphic novel series about a girl who is always in a tizzy.

Hilarious.” (NPR’s All Things Considered)

"Honest, sweet, and laugh-out-loud funny. Fans of Smile and Diary of a Wimpy Kid will appreciate this debut." (Brightly.com)

Meet Abbie Wu. Abbie is in crisis—and not just because she’s starting middle school or because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because everyone seems to have a Thing except her. Abbie Wu is always in crisis.

From author and professional doodler Booki Vivat, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is and where she belongs. Akin to Smile by Raina Telgemeier, Frazzled is heavily illustrated, embarrassingly honest, and sure to appeal to anyone in the middle of figuring out how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up.

Review:

★ “Debut author Vivat writes and illustrates a funny, neurotic, and delightful girl with a heart as big as her worries. The extensively illustrated novel packs a punch with fresh, lively pencil-and-ink drawings and lettering that set each mood perfectly.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“This one is a great gift for an elementary school grad.” (cited as 1 of “10 Next Reads for Kids Who Love Raina Telgemeier”) (Brightly)

“Vivat’s funny, quick-moving debut skips along even faster thanks to the endearing doodles that appear throughout, punctuating Abbie’s travails with chibi-esque emotional outbursts featuring flailing limbs, speed lines, and exaggerated typography.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Abbie’s phobias and worries are charmingly depicted in this heavily illustrated hybrid novel....share this title with fans of Jeff Kinney’s “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series and anyone who will appreciate rooting for a witty underdog.” (School Library Journal)

“Newcomer Vivat’s novel, with its hyperbolic text and superabundant adrenaline-filled cartoon drawings...has plenty of appeal, but it’s the clever plot that gives the story depth.” (The Horn Book)

“Honest, sweet, and laugh-out-loud funny.” (Brightly)

“Abbie’s wisecracks and observations, coupled with her remarkable gift for hyperbole, will keep readers laughing, while her challenges will have them relating. It’s an amusing romp perfect for those with their own concerns about the middles.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“Debut author Vivat’s generously interspersed, animated cartoon illustrations incorporate abundant witty touches and commentary and often extend the main text...” (Booklist Online)
