Read Quiet Girl in a Noisy World: An Introvert's Story Online Free - Sweet, funny, and quietly poignant, Debbie Tung’s comics reveal the ups and downs of coming of age as an introvert.
This illustrated gift book of short comics illuminates author Debbie Tung's experience as an introvert in an extrovert’s world. Presented in a loose narrative style that can be read front to back or dipped into at one’s leisure, the book spans three years of Debbie's life, from the end of college to the present day. In these early years of adulthood, Debbie slowly but finally discovers there is a name for her lifelong need to be alone: she’s an introvert.
The first half of the book traces Debbie’s final year in college: socializing with peers, dating, falling in love (with an extrovert!), moving in, getting married, meeting new people, and simply trying to fit in. The second half looks at her life after graduation: finding a job, learning to live with her new husband, trying to understand social obligations when it comes to the in-laws, and navigating office life. Ultimately, Quiet Girl sends a positive, pro-introvert message: our heroine learns to embrace her introversion and finds ways to thrive in the world while fulfilling her need for quiet.

This was so entirely RELATABLE for introverts everywhere. I basically flipped through the pages just going "yep same same same me...very me...same..." continually so you know the book is a winner there. It's kind of like an autobiography comic of an artist just trying to cope in a world full of v...

THIS BOOK IS ME. I'd much rather stay home snuggled up with a book and a cup of tea than go to a party, and my quiet boyfriend and quiet cats are my favorites to hang out with <3

Debbie thinks there is something wrong with her. She’d rather spend her weekends alone than party at a friend’s house. It’s not that she has trouble making friends. She is kind and lovely, who wouldn’t want to be in her compan...

I'm an introvert, but unlike the author or this graphic novel, I consider mine as mild. I prefer just to stay at home, read a book, or watch a movie/series online than going to the beach or doing sports. That's where my reticence ends because on the contrary, I'm a talkative person, opinionated,...

This book is the perfect portrayal of the life of an introvert, 100%. I related so freaking hard to every single thing that Debbie said, and I found myself snickering and nodding along to pretty much every other page. If you're an introvert - especially one who doesn't frequently find books you c...

Introverts of the world unite! In your home... on your couch or in bed... alone... Just the way we like it!
Debbie Tung has done a brilliant job of turning my biography into a graphic novel. Sure, she got my name wrong and I'm not married to a wonderful extrovert called Jason, but she got everythi...

A book all introverts need. A book extroverts need. A book people need to understand those who have introverted family members and friends and do not get why we're so socially reserved or prefer cancelled plans to a party.
This book SPOKE to me!

This whole book is so relatable!
It was like I was reading a story about myself.
The feelings, the thoughts and the reactions reminded me of myself and I loved every page of this book.
Definitely worth a read!
