Allie's younger sister died traumatically in the end of 2013. I'm sure that HEAVILY impacted her, and given how we know depression affects her, I believe she's just not ready to go back to the world she was a part of. I for one am willing to wait for her, and I wish her and her family the best. I know if/when this book is released, it will continue to bring joy and humor about the reality of depression to those of us who suffer with it. Allie, we appreciate you and the time and content you've already given us. I am so sorry for your loss, and hope that you are finding bright spots in your life. <3
I have to admit that I canceled my order when the release date changes to 2048. But I do regret that decision. In the event I were no longer around then, my son (14) and daughter (12) would have been really happy to receive this book. They loved Hyperbole and have been checking regularly to see when Solutions and Other Problems was going to happen. I do hope that it does. I'm eagerly awaiting the ability to preorder this again.
Here's the thing. Allie spawned a decade of great cartoon driven work. I really hope she and the publishers will find a way to make this happen. Even though there is plenty of material out there, there is only one Allie. Her particular style is very unique and very much needed. I hope that the powers that be will make it so.
Allie -- We love you, we neeeeed you! You make us realize we're not alone dealing with the doldrums, dramas, and disasters in life. Please come and stay at my house in L.A. Ok that sounds creepy. Please write all the things. I'm laughing and crying before I even read it! Your Superfan, Nancy

When I read this book in the future, back when it hasn't been published yet, it changed my life! But seriously, I already know I will love this book when it becomes available. Thank you Allie, for Hyperbole and a Half and all things created by your wonderful self. I'm super excited to see the new book. Hope you're doing well.

Allie makes this world a little better. I’m happy she shares her art and writing with us, and I will happily keep re-reading the new cover over and over. I hope more will eventually come, but I’m just happy she’s given us so much already.
