The Awkward Avocado
May 1, 2022
The Awkward Avocado is a book about acceptance and self-love whose main character does things on their own terms. Awkward Avocado is not concerned about what others think or how they should look or act in order to get someone else’s approval. Though they may feel different at times, they live life guided by their heart and they stay true to themselves. If they could send a message to everyone, it would be to love yourself and keep being you.
"Always be you."
