The Challenges of Adulting in Abbi Waxman's Sweet, Warmhearted Novel: Adult Assembly Required.

If you're looking for a sweet and warmhearted summer read, check out Abbi Waxman’s new novel Adult Assembly Required. When Laura Costello moves to Los Angeles, trying to escape an overprotective family and the haunting memories of a terrible accident, she doesn’t expect to be homeless after a week –but a group of charming locals take her under their wing. Abbi Waxman is the author of The Bookish Life of Nina Hill and I was Told it Would Get Easier, and she excels at creating community and a sense of place in her novels, along with fun yet realistic characters and witty dialogue.

Tammy works at Bemidji State University's library, and she hosts "What We're Reading," a show about books and authors.
