Gr 10 Up–After graduation, best friends Ava and Gen jump headfirst into the real world, Ava working as an intern at a late-night talk show in New York City, and Gen as a journalist at a tiny newspaper in Florida. Via text and email, they support each other from afar. From Ava dating her boss who ends up leaving her with more than a broken heart to Gen adopting a feral (and pregnant) cat, the young women learn to cope with the harsh world that is their new reality. Duo Dunn and Raskin are back in this sequel to I Hate Everyone But You, with a laugh-out-loud funny, heartfelt, and deep look at what it’s like to stumble along your first “real world” job after college. With foul language, sex, and other new adult themes, the authors provide a realistic look at the journey of self-discovery.
VERDICT An excellent look at the emotional aspects of maintaining a friendship, a job, and a life, with a side of humor. Perfect as a stand-alone novel, although readers of the first book will clamor for this one.
