Ah, womanhood. It’s glorious, confusing and very, very messy. Thankfully, Christie Young has created the perfect illustrated guide to navigating the treacherous ocean that is the adult world. Girl Talk: Unsolicited Advice for Modern Ladies is overflowing with doodles, noodles and oodles of handy tips that cover how to survive everything from hangovers and holidays, to breakups and boob snax (“when you’re straight snacking at your desk and some popcorn falls down your shirt into your bra and then you eat it”). Young’s book captures all the craziness and ugliness that comes with young adulthood in the most charming way possible. Growing up is just as beautiful as it is unglamorous, but Girl Talk is proof that there is no situation too sticky for womankind to conquer.
