Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.  

Coming of age isn't just for kids.  

Astrid Strick has always tried to do her best for her three children. Now, they're finally grown up - but you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise.  

Elliott doesn't have any idea who he really is or how to communicate with his own sons. Porter is, at last, pregnant - but feels incapable of rising to the challenge. Nicky has fled to distant New Mexico, where he's living the bohemian dream. And Astrid herself is up to things that would make her children's hair curl.  

Until now, the family members have managed to hide their true selves from each other. But when Nicky's incorrigibly curious daughter, Cecelia, comes to stay, her arrival threatens to upturn everything....  

Witty, astute and irresistible, All Adults Here is a novel about how to survive inside a modern family.

Arduous

Listened to the end but not sure why. Characters were ok and the story just passable.
