Jenny McLaine is an adult. Supposedly. At thirty-five she owns her own house, writes for a cool magazine and has hilarious friends just a message away.
But the thing is:
* She can't actually afford her house since her criminally sexy ex-boyfriend Art left,
* her best friend Kelly is clearly trying to break up with her,
* she's so frazzled trying to keep up with everything you can practically hear her nerves jangling,
* she spends all day online-stalking women with beautiful lives as her career goes down the drain.
And now her mother has appeared on her doorstep, unbidden, to save the day...
Is Jenny ready to grow up and save herself this time?
Deliciously candid and gloriously heartfelt, ADULTS is the story of one woman learning how to fall back in love with her life. It will remind you that when the world throws you a curve ball (or nine), it may take friendship, gin & tonics or even your mother to bring you back...
