On the very first page of The Adults, narrator Emily Vidal introduces herself, or, more specifically her getup and torso: "my yellow fit-and-flare dress that cradled my hips and pointed my breasts due north." That refreshing juxtaposition of informality and teenage self-consciousness permeates this novel, which follows Emily through a puzzled, dysfunctional adolescence into an eventful adulthood in which not all her improvisations work. Alison Espach's coming-of-age novel has been described as "jaggedly funny, moving when you least expect it, and wise beyond its years."
