    Teresa Wong's illustrated account of her post-partum depression is courageous, funny, and sad -- difficult things for a book to be all at once. She wrestles with her guilt over not being able to breastfeed, feelings of inadequacy and self-blame, but through all of this, still manages ...

    I just read this wonderful graphic novel by the Chinese-Canadian writer/illustrator Teresa Wong and it was just wonderful. I suffered badly from postpartum depression. And reading her account so much of what she talks about was the same for me. There is so much pressure on being the pe...

    3.5 stars? Teresa Wong describes her experience with postpartum depression. I did think a lot of the experiences she describes are actually common to all new moms but regardless it is comforting to know you are not alone. I do wonder somewhat if it is glancing over just how hard it is ...

    I enjoyed the story, and the message, but the artwork was very basic for me and that tended to pull me out of the story. I'm glad that she finally got the people around her to listen when she was saying that she was having a hard time with the baby and got the help she needed. I wish m...

    I was literally heave-sobbing while reading this. It explains postpartum depression so well. Not enough women talk about their experiences with it. My best friend sent it to me. I am kind of mad at her for making me cry like this, but love her to death for it. ...

    That feeling when you pick up a book and you're completely immersed in mere moments. That's this book. The power of this book lies in its honesty. It's a beautifully written, illustrated journey through a story that is unlike my own, yet so relatable because of the way Wong tells it...

    I was privileged to read an early copy of Dear Scarlet: The Story of My Postpartum Depression. While I?m not a mother, I found this beautifully illustrated memoir completely relatable. I laughed (out loud), cried (possibly even louder), and?because I had zero doubts this book would...

    This is a beautiful, funny, heart-breaking, and real portrait of postpartum experience told through a graphic narrative. The storytelling is engaging and very moving. This book is so important as PPD is pretty common, but not talked about so much in our culture and through literature. ...

    I think it's an important book to read for everyone. Majority of new mothers are afraid/feel bad about not having those motherry feelings and instincts that we hear about all the time. So this is an important read for everone: women to know they're not alone, men to know that it is a m...

    Wow. This book was such an incredible read. The author depicts her experience with PPD in a way that clearly describes how emotionally and physically weakened she felt. She said so much with such simple drawings. I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling with PPD or any form of...

    ?Dear Scarlet? resonated with me deeply. It is courageous, vulnerable and beautiful all at the same time. Teresa Wong?s telling of her personal journey with postpartum depression in the form of a graphic memoir has a way of opening up this (sometimes) dark topic to the light and ...

    So good to continue to hear honest, healing stories of pregnancy and early motherhood. It's not all blue skies all the time and it's okay to take courage from another woman's courage and keep moving forward. Teresa is funny and to the point! Some women though, may not be able to relate...

    Thank you Edelweiss for this DRC. Well this a honest and necessary book about motherhood, so many things goes under taboo about that subject that I think it's really important to start talking to stop this ideal idea about maternal instinct and how people who gestates are just progr...

    Reading this book took me right back in time to the birth of my premature first born. It has my mind whirling and wanting to spend some time in quiet reflection. While my heart hurts for the trials and suffering Teresa went through on her postpartum journey(s), it?s also almost relie...
