Ryden Malby has just graduated from college. She has her whole life ahead of her, and she also has it completely planned out. Her English degree is going to help her land a fancy job at Happerman & Browning, a publishing house in L.A.

Of course, nothing seems to be working out according to plan. Ryden�s arch-nemesis, Jessica, steals her job right out from under her, she is forced to move back in with her wacky family, and she doesn�t know how to deal with her extremely attractive neighbor, David, who is twelve years her senior.

Through all of this, Ryden finds solace with her best friend, Adam. Adam is also facing some tough decisions; go to Columbia University and become a lawyer, or follow his dream of making music. Adam is also coming to terms with his feelings for Ryden, and she is unsure of how to move forward with their relationship.

Emily Cassel has written a fresh and funny novel about making it in the real world. Ryden and Adam are lovable characters, while Ryden�s dysfunctional, yet supportive family members are laugh-out-loud funny.

Since Cassel�s protagonist is a little older, high school students may not be able to relate to the problems she is facing. I think that seniors and college grads will love this novel. They will be able to identify and appreciate Ryden�s struggle to make it on her own.
