What’s an Adult?: No One Knows Anything and We’re All Going to Die
Emily Regan has no idea what she’s doing. In theory, she’s supposed to be an adult but in actuality, she has no idea what that means and in light of her upcoming high school reunion, she’s pretty positive someone is going to call her out as a fraud. Whether she is speculating that Facebook is out to ruin us all, contracting food poisoning and vomiting her way across London, or just trying to figure out how to make a phone call without sounding like a complete idiot, this collection paints a portrait of someone hoping no one notices that she’s not a real grown up. If you also feel like a big, fat phony, Regan has included a handful of helpful tutorials to fake your way through adulthood, including:
- how to open a greeting card
- how to go grocery shopping
- how to make a doctor’s appointment
- . . . and more!
If you are one of those rare unicorns who actually has their life together, this might not be the book for you. But just in case you’re better at faking it than Emily Regan is, you should probably buy this book. You can say it’s for a friend. No one has to know.
