As a 25 year old, I was intrigued by the concept of this book. However, I think that this book was completely not meant for me (perhaps, it would have been 8 years ago). I believe the minute I became a mom that this book no longer could apply. While there was some mention of young parents, I could not relate to them at all.

I got pregnant (I dealt with it and grew up in those nine months); when my daughter was born, it was done. I was an adult, it wasn't about me. One person stated "having my child made me feel more like a kid". Perhaps, but I just don't relate.

This book is worth looking at if you're bored, or if you honestly feel as though becoming an "adult" is the scariest reality to face. I am not discounting other people's feelings, but the transition to adult should be occurring way before 25 to 27 years old.
