This book a wonderful reminder that you're not alone if you prefer staying in with books and tea to going out every night, that it's okay to need quiet time, and that introversion can be an asset if you'll let it be. So cuddle up in some blankets, put the kettle on, and read these delightful comics, and maybe pass the book on to that extroverted person in your life that needs some help understanding your inner-workings. — From Amy's Picks


Sweet, funny, and quietly poignant, Debbie Tung's comics reveal the ups and downs of coming of age as an introvert.

This illustrated gift book of short comics illuminates author Debbie Tung's experience as an introvert in an extrovert's world. Presented in a loose narrative style that can be read front to back or dipped into at one's leisure, the book spans three years of Debbie's life, from the end of college to the present day. In these early years of adulthood, Debbie slowly but finally discovers there is a name for her lifelong need to be alone: she's an introvert.

The first half of the book traces Debbie's final year in college: socializing with peers, dating, falling in love (with an extrovert ), moving in, getting married, meeting new people, and simply trying to fit in. The second half looks at her life after graduation: finding a job, learning to live with her new husband, trying to understand social obligations when it comes to the in-laws, and navigating office life. Ultimately, Quiet Girl sends a positive, pro-introvert message: our heroine learns to embrace her introversion and finds ways to thrive in the world while fulfilling her need for quiet.
