Raised by Wolves, the new book by Christie Mellor, is a rollicking romp through all the things that the well-raised 19 year old should already know but probably doesn’t. Her style is light and conversational, and her prose compelling even for those of us well outside the target demographic, both in age and experience. (Sigh.)
I couldn’t put it down.
Now, I’m pretty sure that you already know to pay your taxes, take the sponge out of the sink, and be on time, but this book and its advice just might be the perfect gift for a young cousin graduating from high school or college. And if you sneak a peek at the text before you wrap it in impeccable gift wrap, tie it with an unwrinkled piece of ribbon, or just drop it in that gift bag sitting over there on your desk, well, no one would blame you. This book is definitely entertaining, and an addictive read!
Now, when is Christie coming out with her next book?
