I search for books that don't require me to forget some part of myself, some knowledge or contents of memory, that hold as large and finely grained a mirror as possible up to life as we know it, that might allow me to meet the most of what others are, of what the world actually is, with the most of who I am--and I think this book might belong among them.

— From Garrett


It's 2017 and the world is ending. Or at least, that is what the scientists are saying. Climate change is here and Joelle, a 25-year-old Harvard grad, is working 70 hours a week on a television show that is getting canceled. What's worse? She's never found love, or even, dependable casual sex. Her job is toxic. Her college comedy magazine is toxic. The smog in Los Angeles is, well, toxic. Joelle is resigned to die in an earthquake, but then, she meets a strange boy on a dating app -- and suddenly, she is questioning everything.

Through diaristic first-person narration and biting humor, Nicole Levin brings us a coming-of-age romance set in the Los Angeles Anthropocene. Diary of A Sad Girl explores what it takes to find purpose and love in a world increasingly more chaotic and absurd.
