The Isobel Journal: Just a Northern Girl from Where Nothing Really Happens Paperback
Illustrated by Isobel Harrop
This full-colour throughout scrapbook is a true snapshot of contemporary teenage life THE ISOBEL JOURNAL is no ordinary snapshot of a contemporary teenage life.
A charming and vivid narrative scrapbook of the eighteen-year-old author's sketches, mini-graphic novels, photographs and captions, it captures her wit, her observations and her creative talent as she takes us through the three central themes in her life: 'Love', 'Friends, Art and Otters' and 'Me'.
Resonant of Laura Dockrill's MISTAKES IN THE BACKGROUND and with the powerful naive illustrative style of cult Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara, this is a collector's gift for teenagers and all who have the teenage experience still in their hearts.
Readers will emphasise with this witty and honest journal of a girl getting to grips with impending adulthood.
A must-have for all hipster teenagers and anyone who appreciates the raw creativity of youth.
Enchanting and poignant.

Review by lilysreads
This book was so cute! It was written in the form of a journal, with lots of drawings. I don't know, just read it! It's super quick and really quirky. I really want a physical copy of it because I feel that reading it on paper would add so much, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. <br/><br/>I received an e-galley of this book from NetGalley.
