Totally amusing, quirky and down right enjoyable in every way, The Isobel Journal from Isobel Harrop is a fresh and honest take on the teenage years.
The perfect addition to any teenager’s bookshelf for sure!
Organised around three central themes; Me; Friends, Otters, College & Art, plus Love, Isobel keeps her readers amused with her sketches and observations.
Isobel is a teenager, she lives at her home with Dad, her step-mum and three siblings. ‘Underwear shopping at the supermarket with Dad’ is embarrassing, even more so when he’s been ‘walking around with a feather in his hair all day’
Isobel loves ‘drawing things that I see’, and thankfully this journal is full of her great observations.
Filled with sketches, quirky comments and pictures she captures snapshots of days, along with wonderfully random thoughts and opinions in a stream of consciousness that is delightfully entertaining.
‘Watching adults use the internet … is very, very painful.’
Isobel captures that shy awkwardness of friendships and ‘fitting in’, whilst embracing individuality and freedom.
‘Be your own best friend.’
Isobel’s Journal is a visual delight, capturing a unique voice.
At times funny, at times poignant, at times heart breaking (that breakup *sigh*) this fresh journal captures a little bit of everything … making it all seem just that little bit normal.
