Rezension

If you love quirky, heartfelt stories about interesting characters and starting over, then Adult Assembly Required by Abbi Waxman is definitely the book for you."
PopSugar

Waxman's quick-witted and pithy prose gives readers a fun take on "Melrose Place," but instead of back-stabbing and bed-hopping there are trivia clubs and some old-fashioned will-they-or-won't-they?
USA Today

Abbi Waxman explores the challenges of adulting in her warmhearted fifth novel, Adult Assembly Required. With heart and humor, Waxman sensitively explores the challenges of leaving the nest while still loving your family, as well as learning to set clear boundaries and ask for help sometimes in the same moment. [A] witty, hopeful celebration of courage, community and spreading one's wings.
Shelf Awareness, (starred review)

Waxman has a talent for creating familiar characters who are flawed in all the ways many of us are but didn't know anyone else was. ... Waxman nimbly describes the normality of anxiety, and readers can count on her to provide comfort and feel-good smiles. Readers of Emily Henry, Linda Holmes, and Beth O'Leary will be delighted.
Booklist

Abbi Waxman s intrepid heroine has to find herself before she can find love in the heartwarming and hilarious Adult Assembly Required. ...the slow burn between Laura and Bob contributes to its witty, feel-good vibe. Fans of Waxman will recognize several of the wonderful supporting characters, and readers new to her work will want to pick up her backlist after devouring this delightful novel.
Washington Independent Review of Books

Adult Assembly Required is charming, gratifying and engaging. I loved every single character and their eccentricities. It was like walking into a bar where everyone knows your name! The story puts you at ease from the first page reading about the obstacles Laura has to overcome. This story is beautifully light, fluid, witty, funny, with many deep conversations. Laura s new close friends help her recover and find inner strength along the way, with a burgeoning romance with a handsome hunk at its core. Ms. Waxman s delightful new story warmed my heart thoroughly. Adult Assembly Required is totally irresistible!"

Praise for I was Told It Would Get Easier

"Known for her charming and comical novels, Abbi Waxman's latest book stirs up all of the signature smiles and laughs."
Woman's World

"Waxman shines at creating characters that feel like best friends, inspiring compassion, laughs, and cheers, and fans of Katherine Center and Linda Holmes  Evvie Drake Starts Over (2019) will adore this."
Booklist

Waxman expertly navigates the fraught shoals of college admissions in this spot-on tale . Waxman s alternating first-person narration from Jessica and Emily rings true, while a memorable supporting cast provide excellent support This sweet treat doesn t require a college-bound child to enjoy, though anyone who has helped their offspring weather the admissions process will definitely appreciate this sharp send-up.
Publishers Weekly

Funny and insightful.
BookRiot

We re forever fans of Abbi Waxman s sweet, witty, feel-good novels. Her latest, about a mother and daughter making college visits along the East Coast, is her best yet.
HelloGiggles

"An aptly and hilariously titled novel Waxman again delivers with her signature wit and laugh-out-loud writing, offering us authentic characters who feel like people we ve met and loved in our own lives all while offering sly commentary on the roller coaster that is the college application process for parents and their college-hopefuls."
Shondaland

This book s strengths are the exploration of the mother-teen daughter dynamics and relationship and the author s remarkable gift for realistic, witty dialog. VERDICT: Recommended for fans of mother-daughter fiction with both lighthearted and serious moments.
Library Journal

Abbi Waxman's warm, quippy novels explore familial dynamics with sarcastic wit and plenty of heart . Being a teenager--or parenting one--is tricky territory, but Waxman steers her characters through it with compassion, snappy dialogue and the right dose of zany humor. Things may (or may not) get easier for the Burnstein women, but the ride, literal and otherwise, is highly enjoyable.

[A] quirky, sweet story.
