Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This hilarious collection introduces the online comic started by Lela Lee when she was a sophomore at U.C. Berkeley in 1997. The comic now has a dedicated following of thousands of fans, and Angry Little Girls products are showing up everywhere as hot new licensed merchandise.

At the center of Angry Little Girls is Kim, the little Asian girl who's so angry she shakes. There's also Deborah, the disenchanted princess ("Dear Diary," Deborah writes, "I feel fat"); Maria, the crazy little Latina given to overly profound thoughts; Wanda, the fresh little soul sistah who can be just a bit too upbeat; and Xyla, who's so full of doom and gloom that a cloud of rain follows her. The book also features a problematic boyfriend and a quiz to determine "What kind of angry are you?"

Review:

"Lee created Kim, the angry little Asian girl, for a brief cartoon that was a response to insulting Asian characters in other cartoons. In this collection of her weekly strip, she expands the idea to include a bunch of girls of different races. The book aims for wry humor and occasionally achieves it, as when Xyla, the gloomy girl, says, 'The thought of suicide is what keeps me alive.' But actual laughs are rare. Lee's minimal drawing style recalls Peanuts, Life in Hell and South Park, and she tries to emulate their tone. Like Peanuts, she gives her child characters adult neuroses, cynical worldviews and a touch of sadness. But her plain approach never reaches that strip's subtlety. Nor does her satire come close to Life in Hell, which at its best was relentless about the state of love, work and childhood in the modern world. Instead, we have a trifle that seems too timid to say much about anything, ironically packaged with a hard cover and heavy, full-color glossy pages." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

"South Park" for girls, this hilarious collection of comics is perfect for young women everywhere. Anger has never been so funny.
