Adult Assembly Required


Abbi Waxman

ABOUT THE BOOK: 


When Laura Costello moves to Los Angeles, trying to escape an overprotective family and the haunting memories of a terrible accident, she doesnt expect to be homeless after a week. (Shes pretty sure she didnt start that fire — right?) She also doesn't expect to find herself adopted by a rogue bookseller, installed in a lovely but completely illegal boardinghouse, or challenged to save a losing trivia team from ignominy&but thats what happens. Add a regretful landlady, a gorgeous housemate and an ex-boyfriend determined to put himself back in the running and youll see why Laura isnt really sure shes cut out for this adulting thing. Luckily for her, her new friends Nina, Polly and Impossibly Handsome Bob aren't sure either, but maybe if they put their heads (and hearts) together theyll be able to make it work.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 

Abbi Waxman is the USA Today bestselling author of I Was Told It Would Get Easier, The Bookish Life of Nina Hill, Other Peoples Houses, and The Garden of Small Beginnings. She lives in Los Angeles, California, with her husband and three children.
