Teen

Piecing Me Together by Renee Watson

Adult

I Was Told It Would Get Easier by Abbi Waxman

Jessica and Emily have very different ideas of how this college tour should go. For Emily, it’s a last-ditch effort to get excited about her future, because every day in the present feels like such a slog. Can’t she just skip straight to the adulting part? It looks so much easier . . . at least on social media. For Jessica, it’s a chance to bond with the daughter she seems to have lost. They used to be so close, but then Goldfish crackers and Play-Doh were no longer enough of a draw. She isn’t even sure if Emily likes her anymore. To be honest, Jessica isn’t entirely sure she likes herself. Together with a dozen strangers-and two familiar enemies-Jessica and Emily travel the East Coast, visiting one prospective college after another, meeting up with family and old friends along the way.
