A dazzling, humorous, and highly personal portrayal of neurodivergence from a leading voice in mental health comics.

Eisner Award nominated author Bex Ollerton--known as @Schnumn to her thousands of followers--is a talented comic artist who feels energized and courageous on some days and exhausted and emotionally depleted on others. In Lavender Clouds, she translates her experiences with Autism, ADHD, and mental health into a series of colorful, emotionally resonant comics that tell stories of neurodiversity and resilience.

With a tone that is sharp but always sensitive, this debut book collection describes the many insights and strategies the author has learned on her journey to self-acceptance. Among the many topics addressed in the book are the folly of "foolproof" organization strategies, the perils of burnout, the joy of small hopes, and the importance of growing at your own pace and on your own path

Breathtaking in its artistic range and emotional truth, Lavender Clouds offers an enlightening and uplifting read for anyone struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, burnout, or other issues related to mental health.

I liked this little graphic novel. The illustrations are cute and the language is funny in a casual and self-depricating kind of way.

The overall tone of the book is fairy negative (but in a light-hearted way), wherein the author recounts their experiences with depression, anxiety and stress in a very forward manner.

You should note that this is by no means a self-help book and the author doesn't really offer any 'answer' to the experiences presented in each of the comics. I don't think that takes away from the book at all, but rather gives a very real representation of what it's like to live with depression, etc.

I think any neurodivergent person who suffers from depression or anxiety would find this book to be incredibly relateable.

Thank you NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for sending this book for review consideration. All opinions are my own.
