Review: Everything Is OK by Debbie Tung

Author/Artist: Debbie Tung
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
Released: September 27, 2022
Received: NetGalley

Can we just stop and take a moment to appreciate the cover of Everything Is OK? Being a graphic novel, it’s no surprise that Everything Is OK appreciates visual elements – but that cover is striking. It’s the perfect balance of tones and pulls the reader in. At least, it pulled this reader in.

The other thing that really caught my attention about Everything Is OK is the promise. This graphic novel describes Debbie Tung’s struggle with anxiety and depression. I imagine that is something many people can relate to – especially now. I have struggled my whole life with anxiety, so this book hit me hard.

This graphic memoir portrays all of Debbie Tung’s experiences and insights, giving readers a chance to see through a lens, unlike their own experience. It has the good and bad moments, and everything in between.

I love how honest and real this graphic novel feels. Everything Is OK is easy to connect to, and I’m not just saying that because I, too, have dealt with anxiety. I think anyone could find a way to relate to Debbie Tung’s writing and words; she does such a good job here.

Thanks to Andrews McMeel Publishing and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
