The definitive guide to being a teen in the modern age, with sage advice from a modern teenager and appealing to fans of Rookie. Earth Hates Me presents a look inside the mind of the modern teenager - from a modern teenager's perspective. Sixteen-year-old Ruby Karp addresses the issues facing every high schooler, from grades to peer pressure to Snapchat stories, and unpacks their complicated effects on the teen psyche. Ruby advises her peers on the importance of feminism ("not just the Spice Girls version"), how to deal with jealousy and friend break-ups, family life, and much more. The book takes an in-depth look at the effect of social media on modern teens and the growing pressures of choosing the right college and career. Amy Poehler says, "This book is filled with juicy young person wisdom". With Ruby's powerful underlying message "we are more than just a bunch of dumb teenagers obsessed with our phones", Earth Hates Me is the definitive guide to being a teen in the modern age.
