“If you’re getting married add this to your wish list. It’ll be great thing to pull out when sitting near the fire place or on each other’s lap with a wine glass in hand.”—Long Island Bride & Groom
“Love this! Part diary, part workbook—a fun way to focus on your marriage together.”—Wedding Guide Chicago
“…a unique wedding/marriage keepsake for feisty couples with a sense of humor.” –Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight
Based on the hit Tumblr “The Awkward Phase,” this book answers that question with personal stories and cringe-worthy photos from seasoned comedians, YouTube stars, and people like the rest of us that cover everything from sweaty-palm moments to bad band photos. In these pages, you’ll hear about the moment Shaun Sperling realized he was gay at a Richard Simmons’s workout studio, how Bente Engelstoft made her own bra out of her dad's old underwear, and why even though Robert Bacon’s awkward phase was mortifying, it was the beginning of his new, happier life.
Ultimately, The Awkward Phase encourages us to laugh and celebrate the moments that have helped shape who we are. As Gillespie and Linic say, “Everyone is in on the joke. You don’t have to eat your lunch alone in the bathroom stall. You can sit with us.”
