Welcome to Digi Valley, a town where no one knows what they’re doing but everyone’s trying their best!

In this charming, satirical “children’s” book, Chelsea Marshall and Mary Dauterman poke fun at the hyperconnected contemporary world in which we live.

One thing is for certain in Digi Valley: Everyone is very, very busy texting, tweeting, sending selfies, swiping for dates, and binging on their favorite shows. Whether you’re looking for the best kombucha, a baby DJ class, or nothing at all, this urban mecca has something for everyone.

Follow residents like Frances and Sadie as they hustle to make their two-woman web series, freelancer Frank as he navigates the world of digital love, and Cat Landlord as he stars in a booming reality show franchise.

From the local vegan café to a singles bar, you’ll meet all kinds of modern workers, like CEO coach, urban farmer, brunch photographer, and more, as they bike, bus, and ride-share their way around town. Everyone here is connected in ways big and small through their real-life interactions, but mostly through their screens.

So come to Digi Valley to celebrate the modern-day absurdity that makes us scream, “What Are We Even Doing With Our Lives ” 

. . . Seriously though, does anyone know
