*MUCH RAVED ABOUT BY CHRIS EVANS ON HIS BBC RADIO 2 BREAKFAST SHOW*


EVERYONE ELSE IS WINGING IT TOO.


You know you're a grown-up when...


·You become impatient while scrolling down to your year of birth.


· You've lost and gained the same 10lbs so many times you now regard it as an old friend.


· Your parents have stopped trying to change you.


· You don't want to be with the cool people anymore; you want to be with your people.


· You know that 'Soul mate' isn't a pre-existing condition. It's earned over time.


Does it ever feel like everyone - except you - is a bona-fide adult? Do you wonder how real grown-ups get to be so mysteriously capable and wise? When she turns 40, Pamela Druckerman - author of the #1 Sunday Times bestseller French Children Don't Throw Food - wonders whether her mind will ever catch up with her face. Waiters start calling her 'Madame', and she detects a disturbing new message in mens' gazes: I would sleep with her, but only if doing so required no effort whatsoever.


There Are No Grown-Ups is a midlife coming-of-age story, a hilarious quest for wisdom, self-knowledge and the right pair of pants. It's a book for readers of all ages about - finally - becoming yourself
