Clues to the Mysteries of Adulthood

How did we get here? Should Mom not have done all Junior’s science projects for him? Should Dad have made Tiffany take that summer job in college instead of paying her way through Europe? Perhaps. But what we really want to know is, what can we do about it?

In RAISED BY WOLVES, Christie Mellor lovingly offers a handbook full of advice and gentle verbal spankings that will send them off into the real world. She explains how to RSVP, clean a bathroom, behave in a restaurant, be a good party guest, and much, much more – the things every adult needs to know in order to get through life without alienating every person they meet.

Mellor’s trademark arch, witty style makes even the most pointed advice palatable. If only we’d all had a book like this when we were young!
