“In her emotionally vulnerable YA debut, Wahl...revisits her high school diaries to deliver a fictional adaptation of her adolescence…skillfully presenting a raw, unfiltered story about growing up and taking risks that will surely resonate.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

Take a peek inside Phoebe’s Diary into a bracingly honest illustrated account of the explosive turmoil and joy of adolescence, based on the author’s actual teenage journals.​

 
Meet Phoebe. She is cool and insecure, talented and vulnerable, sexy and awkward, driven and confused, ecstatic and tragic.

Like you.

And here is her diary, packed full of invaluable friends and heartbreaking crushes, spectacular playlists and vintage outfits, drama nerds and art kids, old wounds and new love. Based on her own teenage diary, Phoebe Wahl has melded truth with fiction and art with text, casting a spell that brings readers deep into the experience of growing up.

Phoebe Wahl is an award-winning illustrator and surface designer. She graduated from Rhode Island School of Design and has published several acclaimed picture books, including Little Witch Hazel and The Blue House.
