“How to Be A Grown Up” is another book in the lately popular genre of “normal family breaks apart and woman has to scramble to create her own identity”.
When Blake, the handsome movie star, leaves Rory with their two young children, she is at a loss for what to do. She is only a freelance designer for magazine pieces, with not enough work to keep her family afloat. When an opportunity appears, she snatches it. Rory is thrown into the world of twenty-somethings, strange slang, and ideas that she struggles to understand but somehow succeeds at.
If you look past Rory’s highly uncommon and unlikely success at her job, you are left with a story of a sad, lonely forty-something struggling to create a life after her husband has left her on her own. She has to get back out into the dating scene and remember how to be confident, because why would she need to have a personality or confidence if she has her handsome husband?
I really struggled with this book. It was boring, unbelievable, and the characters weren’t that engaging. I found it hard to care for them. An unenthusiastic two stars for this one.
