Awkward. It has become the catch phrase of an entire generation - to describe situations so uncomfortable that all you can do is cringe as they unfold. Sam Scholfield has a knack of getting into the kind of awkward situations that make most of us want to flee - but she also has a talent for anticipating and sailing through most of them unscathed. "Awkward" covers dozens of social perils, including fraught but necessary conversations ("I don't want to marry you"); situations you're in through no fault of your own (your boss sees the NSFW pictures that your friend put on facebook); times when speaking up could cost you (a co-worker steals your idea, but you can't prove it); and when you've really screwed up (calling your significant other the wrong name in bed). These aren't awful situations - everyone involved will come through them alive. But with Sam on your side, you'll survive them without burning any bridges or losing your mind - and you might even come to see the humour in it all.
