Description - Graduates In Wonderland by Jessica Pan
Rachel, Since we last spoke, I've flown thirteen hours and made it halfway across the world with my entire life packed into two suitcases and no return ticket (don't tell Chinese immigration). . . . since I can't communicate with 99 percent of the people I see, I'm going to overcompensate with too much information in these e-mails. The night of their graduation from Brown University, best friends Jess and Rachel made an ambitious pact- to write each other no-holds-barred, honest accounts of their lives every week, no matter what. Days later, Jess flew to Beijing and Rachel moved to New York, beginning their brand-new lives in the real world. Graduates in Wonderland maps the winding path to adulthood, told through two friends' funny and intimate e-mails. From New York to Paris and Beijing to Melbourne, Jess and Rachel share tales of romantic flings and job mishaps, breakups and breakdowns. They gamely navigate bouts of youthful euphoria, moments of doubt and uncertainty, and frequent self-reinvention as they tumble into adulthood. More than anything, Jess and Rachel learn that while so much else is fleeting, friendship is the one constant that will see them through turbulent times. Irreverent and hilariously candid, Graduates in Wonderland traces the young women's journey from fresh-faced graduates to (almost) adults. 'I loved Graduates in Wonderland. It made me nostalgic for the uncertainty and excitement and seemingly endless possibilities of the postcollege years. The first thing I did after reading it was pour my heart out - via e-mail, of course - to my best friend.' Rachel Bertsche, New York Times bestselling author of MWF Seeking BFF 'Diving headfirst into the humor and heartache that is life after college, these girls kiss a lot of foreign frogs in a lot of foreign cities. And just when they think they are in danger of becoming real-live adults, they prove themselves spectacularly wrong. And I love them for it.' Jerramy Fine, author of Someday My Prince Will Come
