“This hilarious book of 15 essays explores the challenges of being a 20-something woman. The author covers everything from hiding her childhood toys under the sink to being a bridesmaid for a less-than-good friend. Witty and honest, the book will feel like brunch with your girlfriends, but funnier.”
“This debut essay collection is full of sardonic wit and charm, and Crosley effortlessly transforms what could have been stereotypical tales of mid-20s life into a breezy series of vignettes with uproariously unpredictable outcomes....Fans of Sarah Vowell’s razor-sharp tongue will love this original new voice.”
