All Adults Here
By Emma Straub
Narrated by Emily Rankin / 11 hours 4 minutes
“The Strick family: dysfunctional people just trying to navigate life. Astrid is a quirky, uptight mother of three adult children. She recently witnessed a woman get hit by a bus, triggering her to explore her life and act before it's too late. Meanwhile, her three children Porter, Nicky & Elliot are making mistakes in their own lives. All Adults Here explores friendships, family, morality, sexuality and most importantly love. I always enjoy a book with some family dysfunction, because whose family isn't a little dysfunctional? Listening to this book was pretty entertaining and found myself chuckling throughout. This book covered many topics without feeling pushy or forced. The characters came off like a real family, that should be on a sitcom. The growth of the family was really well thought out. This book was a win for me, and I will be recommending it to all of my dysfunctional friends.”Alexandra, Birdy's Bookstore

“I started listening to this book before knowing anything about it. The narrative is split between two female characters. As the book opens, Marin is a successful businesswoman who is happily married with one child. Kenzi is a young art student in her twenties. Her boyfriend just happens to be Marin's husband. One day, Marin is a candy store with her precious son. She looks away to pay the cashier. When she looks down on her son, he has vanished. There are many surprising twists throughout this well-written story. The final plot twist is one that I never saw coming. The narration was beautifully done. I highly recommend this novel to the reader who treasures a razor-sharp thriller.”Katie, Buttonwood Books and Toys
