Leaving Home by Lynn Johnston

Book Description

Never preachy, always informative, and full of laughs, "Leaving Home" is packed with tried and true nuggets, from tips on finding an apartment to tips on getting your eviction notice reversed, from someone with a sense of humor who's "been there, done that." The reader is walked through essentials such as building a home-grown vacation, "Too Broke to Break?" handling depression, "It Can Get You and You Can Fight Back," and dealing with school and job jitters. Eleven sections are crammed with advice on furnishing apartments, mastering the ancient art of bartering, living with "the boss without a heart, the prof without a clue," and more. It includes such gems as: The Yard Sale -- Your "Vintage Kitchenware Store"; Rules for Roommates: Rent Is Not A Voluntary Contribution; Your Mother Is No Longer the Alarm Clock; The Mail Is Always For You! "Leaving Home" not only relays how to avoid common pitfalls, but also how to get out after you've landed in them face first! Pearls of wisdom and insightful cartoons make this a must-read for anyone starting life on their own.
