Can't-Wait Wednesday: I Was Told It Would Get Easier

Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

I Was Told It Would Get Easier
Abbi Waxman
Expected publication date: June 16, 2020
Squashed among a bus full of strangers, mother-daughter duo Jessica and Emily Burnstein watch their carefully mapped-out college tour devolve into a series of off-roading misadventures, from the USA Today bestselling author of The Bookish Life of Nina Hill.

Jessica and Emily Burnstein have very different ideas of how this college tour should go.

For Emily, it’s a preview of freedom, exploring the possibility of her new and more exciting future. Not that she’s sure she even wants to go to college, but let’s ignore that for now. And maybe the other kids on the tour will like her more than the ones at school. . . . They have to, right?

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 sure she likes herself.

Together with a dozen strangers–and two familiar enemies–Jessica and Emily travel the East Coast, meeting up with family and old friends along the way. Surprises and secrets threaten their relationship and, in the end, change it forever. - from Goodreads
I've really enjoyed Abbi Waxman's books, and this one about a mother-daughter duo on a road trip sounds just as heartfelt!

  5. I am about halfway through this book, and as always, loving Waxman's humor. There is an interesting dynamic between Jessica and Emily, and I am hoping this college tour brings them closer together. Hope you enjoy it when you read it.
