Whether you’re “WTF is TikTok” years old, “seeing all teenagers as potential babysitters” years old, or “saw something you had as a child in an antique store” years old, it’s time to admit it. You’re old.

In I Am “Why Do I Need Venmo?” Years Old, Janine Annett and Ali Solomon chronicle the trials and tribulations of getting older, touching on themes from technology and pop-culture to fashion and body image with comics such as:
  • I am “super into dogs and clogs” years old.
  • I am “excited about composting” years old.
  • I am “texting about the carpool” years old.
  • I am “wow, LL Bean has a lot of cool clothes now” years old.
  • I am “can’t digest cheese” years old.
  • I am “hurt myself putting on pants” years old.
Endearing and relatable, hilarious and accurate, it’s the perfect book to buy yourself, your friend, or your sister as a reminder that we’re not alone in this journey toward ergonomic backpacks, getting excited about home renovations, and becoming our mothers.

As someone whose body feels like an antique lawnmower someone bought off eBay (why does this thing not work??) and whose references are as updated as a computer running Windows95, this book was PAINFULLY ACCURATE.—Raquel D'Apice, author of Welcome to the Club: 100 Parenting Milestones You Never Saw Coming
