The Wrong Side of Twenty-Five was a nice read that kept my interest throughout the book.
Kylie and Alexa are two good characters,their struggling and uncertainties of the future are so relatable.I'm sure I've met them during my life and I'm even more sure I was like them at some point in my life.
I really liked Kate Armitage writing style.I've enjoyed her words that in their simplicity deliver a strong message of self-worth and uniqueness.
There isn't a precise age to fulfill our dreams but we don
A fabulous debut from Kate Armitage. I literally could not put this book down. The author captures the raw essence of how life feels as we reach that quarter of a century landmark and portrays it with stunning effect via Kylie and Alexa and the many twists and turns in their friendship. A unique coming-of-age story... and an author who is definitely one to watch!
Of the two, I'm an Alexa. She seems to have her act together, sweet and organized, things looking up in her life. Or are they?
Kylie, bless her, is a wreck. I love my friends like her because I can live vicariously through their excitement and chaos. I spent most of the book worried over her continued downward spiral ... but don't lose hope Kylie, things will look up for you. ...more

I can’t speak for the life experience of all twenty-somethings, but I felt as though Kylie and Alexa really showcased what women in that age bracket go through, at least from my own viewpoint. I can recall not feeling as though I was where I wanted to be at twenty-five, that I wasn’t as successful or accomplished as I felt I should have been. That there were a lot of expectations and pressure put upon me to “grow up” and “prepare for the fu ...more
I think every female at some point has had some sort of midlife crisis I know I certainly did. I had a plan in my head of what I thought my life would be like when I was 25. I think this is why I found this book so relatable.
I loved both main characters Kylie and Alexa and could identify with them both at various points throughout the book.
If you are looking for a lighthearted read that reminds you of your early twenties then this is t ...more
