Summary
Does it ever feel like everyone - except you - is a bona-fide adult? Do you wonder how real grown-ups get to be so mysteriously capable and wise? When she turns forty, Pamela Druckerman wonders whether her mind will ever catch up with her face. With frank personal stories and witty maxims, Druckerman hilariously navigates the unexplored zone between young and not-so-young concluding that there are no grown-ups. Everyone else is winging it too - some just do it more confidently
