An instant New York Times bestseller, Booki Vivat's Frazzled is the first installment of a funny middle grade series about a girl who is always in a tizzy.

Hilarious.” (NPR’s All Things Considered)

"Honest, sweet, and laugh-out-loud funny. Fans of Smile and Diary of a Wimpy Kid will appreciate this debut." (

Meet Abbie Wu. Abbie is in crisis—and not just because she’s starting middle school or because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because everyone seems to have a Thing except her. Abbie Wu is always in crisis.

From author Booki Vivat, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is and where she belongs. Akin to Smile by Raina Telgemeier, Frazzled is sure to appeal to anyone in the middle of figuring out how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] funny, neurotic, and delightful girl with a heart as big as her worries…The multicultural cast of characters, including kooky Aunt Lisa and scary Ms. Skelter, turns up the charm and humor scale. A hilarious Asian-American heroine guaranteed to provoke laughs—not anxiety.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “She’s edgy, conspiratorial, and more than dramatic! Narrator Tara Sands…embraces the whole scene and is fully believable as Abbie…Sands speeds up the narration in spots, mirroring Abbie’s anxious states and convictions—whether they reflect the probable or the improbable. Listeners will also chuckle over Sands’ portrayal of Abbie’s mother and her rendition of the vice principal’s voice over the intercom.”


  • “Newcomer Vivat’s novel…has plenty of appeal, but it’s the clever plot that gives the story depth.”

    Horn Book Guide

  • “Abbie’s phobias and worries are charmingly depicted…[and] makes her struggles entertaining and relatable…[For] anyone who will appreciate rooting for a witty underdog.”
