From the creator of THE END OF THE FUCKING WORLD
‘Scary, disturbing and expertly executed . . good if not better than Forsman’s most celebrated precursor.’ GROVEL
Fifteen-year-old Syd feels totally out of place. She’s skinny but not ‘hot-skinny’, she’s dealing with the death of her father in silence, and her best friend (who Syd is really in love with) is dating a homophobic bully. Syd’s guidance counselor gives her a diary in which to vent her frustration, but Syd has another outlet for her anger, one which threatens to overwhelm her entirely.
From acclaimed cartoonist Charles Forsman, I Am Not Okay With This expertly channels teenage ennui while telling a powerful story about the intense and sometimes violent tug of war between trauma and control.
As with Forsman’s best work, it’s another troubling yet poetic exploration of young adults working through their mental pain via its physical projection.

One of the most honest depictions of the emotional telescoping effect of both depression and adolescence.
A short, satisfying modern ballad of angst and mass murder. . . [a] line-drawn miniature epic.
