About the Author

Halley Bondy is based in Brooklyn and has worked as a news reporter for the Newark Star Ledger, an arts journalist for Back Stage, and as an editor for MTV Iggy. A playwright, comedian, and the winner of the 2008 Fringe Festival NYC for Outstanding Playwright, she is the author of Don't Sit on the Baby (Zest Books 2012).

James Lloyd is an illustrator and commercial artist living in Boise, Idaho.


"Bondy follows her babysitting guide, Don't Sit on the Baby, with a book that urges readers to make the most of their time away at school: 'College wouldn't be college if it didn't include a wide range of experiences, ' writes Bondy in her introduction. Each of the 77 ideas gets a spread of its own, and Bondy groups her suggestions into categories revolving around the dorm ('Bring your roommate a gift'), flying solo ('Get lost in town'), being outgoing (in praise of the dance party: 'Booty shaking is the almighty peacemaking universal language of fun'), preparing for the future ('The connections you make now will last a lifetime if you nurture those relationships'), and more. Sidebars, bulleted lists, and illustrations featuring a stick-figure robot contribute to a format tailor-made for skipping around. Whether readers are introverts, partiers, activists, or athletes, Bondy provides an array of opportunities to make their time in college as well-rounded as possible. And much of the advice applies to life beyond college, too: 'People make the most colossal mistakes when they don't trust their gut.'"--Publishers Weekly
