THERE ARE NO GROWN-UPS. 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. What are the modern forties, and what do we know once we reach them? What makes someone a `grown-up` anyway? And why didn`t anyone warn us that we`d get cellulite on our arms? 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.
