A young girl named Dot romanticizes her unique state of despair. Through a series of humorous, melodramatic events, Dot sets on a quest to finally and officially be declared "clinically depressed." If you are looking for flowers and sunshine, you've come to the wrong place. If you are squeamish, frail, or susceptible to uncontrollable cheeriness, put this book down right now and walk away! This book is about doom and gloom and perpetual despair. It is about the dismal thoughts of a hopelessly depressed young girl and her quest to finally be declared "clinical." Monsters and demons and an endless abyss are what await you here. If, however, you accept the fact that the world is forlorn and desolate, you may have just found yourself a soul mate. Approach with caution. Be sure to have lots of chocolate chip ice cream on hand, as well as 14 boxes of tissues and the name of a good psychiatrist. Whatever you do, absolutely do NOT read this book unless you are clinically depressed. You were warned.
