Release Date: May 17, 2022

In Abbi Waxman’s newest novel, Adult Assembly Required we meet Laura Costello – a New York native who is trying for a fresh start in Larchmont, Los Angeles. Abbi Waxman brings us back into the same world where we first met Nina of The Bookish Life of Nina Hill.

All too soon, Laura discovers that adulting isn’t as easy as she thought it would be. She finds herself homeless and eventually adopted by the local bookseller. Will Laura find her bearings to make it work in this new life?

Adulting is never easy and Abbi shines a light on themes of isolation, connection and mental health in Adult Assembly Required.


SYNOPSIS

A young woman arrives in Los Angeles determined to start over, and discovers she doesn’t need to leave everything behind after all, from Abbi Waxman, USA Today bestselling author of The Bookish Life of Nina Hill.

When Laura Costello moves to Los Angeles, trying to escape an overprotective family and the haunting memories of a terrible accident, she doesn’t expect to be homeless after a week. (She’s pretty sure she didn’t start that fire — right?) She also doesn’t expect to find herself adopted by a rogue bookseller, installed in a lovely but completely illegal boardinghouse, or challenged to save a losing trivia team from ignominy…but that’s what happens. Add a regretful landlady, a gorgeous housemate and an ex-boyfriend determined to put himself back in the running and you’ll see why Laura isn’t really sure she’s cut out for this adulting thing. Luckily for her, her new friends Nina, Polly and Impossibly Handsome Bob aren’t sure either, but maybe if they put their heads (and hearts) together they’ll be able to make it work for them.
