So Far It’s Been Pretty Awkward

So Far It’s Been Pretty Awkward

By Karisa Tell

A collection of autobiographical essays and anecdotes, So Far It’s Been Pretty Awkward is a lighthearted look at one young woman’s life so far, through awkward colored glasses. Follow Karisa from pre-school to young adulthood and beyond, experiencing all of life’s uncomfortable moments, including cross-dressing bullies and slipping on banana peels. Readers will discover why awkwardness is so hot right now, how to handle most sidewalk interactions, and how to “chair-issa.”
