Reviews

"Your worst-ever family holiday gathering can't possibly be as painfully hilarious as the one in Caroline Hulse's The Adults. I happily devoured this funny, insightful novel and believe you will, as well."--Julie Schumacher, author of Dear Committee Members and The Shakespeare Requirement

"Such a breath of fresh air! Witty, intensely human, and (dare I say it) relatable . . . This novel is the perfect comedy of errors."--Katie Khan, author of Hold Back the Stars

"This debut is the whole package: realistic, flawed characters placed in an increasingly tense situation, resulting in a surprising, suspenseful novel."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A snappy writing style and changing viewpoints make the pages of this debut fly by as readers will want to know what happens next."--Library Journal (starred review)

"Brilliantly funny."--Good Housekeeping (UK)

"Razor-sharp comedy."--Sunday Mirror

"An entertaining, tongue-in-cheek tale of people who are the adults, after all."--Booklist
