Critical Praise

"With swift humor and intriguing melancholy Rosenfeld gets to the heart of the struggle of growing up. She captures what it feels like to move away from the bright lights, and into the real world, where your childhood is either squarely behind you-or you're on the verge of re-creating it. Either way, it's scary, fun and filled with surprises."

——Jill Davis, author of Girls' Poker Night

"Who knew that a voice this hysterically funny can render family life with such sadness and depth. By the fifth page, I was ready to follow Lucinda Rosenfeld's heroine to hell and back, not to mention her native New Jersey. Take this book home with you!"

——Gary Shteyngart, author of The Russian Debutante's Handbook

"Twenty- and thirtysomethings experiencing the same ennui as Phoebe will relate to her struggles in this charming, often hilarious novel."


"Funny, sassy...Rosenfeld's style is witty and winning."
