Adam say about the book, “Since I was a child, I’ve always wanted to publish a book – long before comedy or anything. When people asked me what I was going to be when I grew up, I told them, ‘A writer.’ But I never in a million years would have thought the subject matter of my first book would be the suicide of my little sister, whom I love and miss so much. I’m excited and heartbroken… I’m sure anyone who has suffered through such a major loss can relate. But this book helped me grieve… And as sad as it is, I did my best to make it funny and honest too, like Lydia was. Like my family is. It’s a tribute to the littlest member of our clan who burned so brightly, and it’s an honest look at mental illness and mourning. So pre-order the book if you feel so inclined. Get to know an amazing person gone too soon, one I miss and love dearly. Every single day.”
