Gabbie Hanna disarms the sacred and elevates the mundane in this exhilarating debut collection of illustrated poems. Ranging from the sing-song rhythms of children’s verses and a sophisticated confessional style, Gabbie explores the emotionally charged space between childhood and womanhood, revealing her own longings, obsessions, and insecurities along the way. Adultolescence heralds the arrival of an artist with a magical ability to connect through alienation, bury truth bombs within observations about pizza cravings and social media, and detonate wickedly funny jokes between moments of existential dread. You’ll turn to the last page because you get her, and you’ll return to the first page because she gets you.
Gabbie Hanna is the New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of Adultolescence and a Billboard-charting musical artist. Starting off as a web-based creator, she amassed a combined 20 million followers across her social media platforms as she worked on her writing and music. A native of a small town in Pennsylvania and University of Pittsburgh graduate, Gabbie shocked her loved ones when she drove cross-country to pursue her dreams in Los Angeles where she currently resides.
