'Frazzled: Ordinary Mishaps and Inevitable Catastrophes' by Booki Vivat is an adorable, illustrated story that not only proves a fast read, but also a truly enjoyable one. From the accurate and telling illustrations, to main character Abbie Wu's questioning and uncertain attitude about life in general, Vivat has crafted a story that anyone in middle school and beyond can relate to as they consider their own experiences.

Even though the story would have read well without the illustrations, they are most welcome, as they truly bring additional empathy for the characters and their attitudes within the story. Abbie's relationship with her family's cat, her worry over who stole her locker, and her neverending concern about how things will ever work out in her favor make her character jump off of each page.

Anyone who reads 'Frazzled: Ordinary Mishaps and Inevitable Catastrophes' (the second in the series) and has not yet read 'Frazzled: Everyday Disasters and Impending Doom' (the first in the series) will want to grab it as quickly as possible. Vivat's relatable and focused writing stands out in the world of contemporary realistic fiction. Highly recommended!
