THE ABCS OF ADULTHOOD offers 26 honest, warm, and funny quick hits of wisdom ordered alphabetically; each entry is paired with a street-smart photograph of a matching alphabet letter taken by the authors themselves (predominantly by Deb, an acclaimed photojournalist). Based on a viral article written by Copaken upon her own child's departure for college, this witty take on the grad gift book ranges from the pragmatic (B is for Bed--the joys of making it) to the profound (R is for Risk--always worth it).
