    "Fangirl is a great coming of age novel that integrates themes of mental health. Anyone who has experience with anxiety will appreciate the honesty with which this tale is told. Cath goes on an intense, emotional, but ultimately educational journey as she transitions into adulthood--one we can all relate to. A wonderful book about growing up and letting go."

    "My eighteen year old son was going through a bit of anxiety and this book did a great job of informing him about what he was feeling. With school, maintaining friendships, and figuring out who they are as a person, there is no wonder so many young adults experience anxiety! This book helped my son realize that it is completely normal to have anxiety and especially at his age. "Calm, Clever, & Carefree!" also helped him develop ways to help with his anxiety and to work through it. I would recommend it any young adults (or their parents) that are going through a lot to buy this book and give it a read. I think it will really help out!"
