‘What Are We Even Doing With Our Lives? The Most Honest Children’s Book of All Time’ is set in the fictional town of Digi Valley, whose inhabitants lead very millennial lives. Working jobs such as life-coach, beauty blogger, app developer, cat landlord, new media consultant and even baby DJ teacher, the Digi Valley natives are very, very busy at their very, very important jobs. When they’re not at work, the folks from the Valley like to catch Uber’s to get to the farmer’s market, and text, tweet, and take selfies while sipping a latte at a vegan café. Oh, and just in case you were worried that this town isn’t kid-friendly – think again! The local primary – Digi Valley Elementary school scores high on both tech skills and emotional sensitivity, so you’re guaranteed your kid will graduate with a high IQ and a high EQ.Everything is just #blessed in Digi Valley, until one dark day, the internet goes down! And that’s when things get really interesting!

From our obsessions with our devices, our coffee and our binge-watching TV, no stone is left unturned in the quest to point out the more ridiculous elements of being an adult in the millennial age. While this is technically a kid’s book, we reckon it would be a genius buy for the hippest millennial adult that you know.
