Alida Nugent graduated college with a degree in one hand and a drink in the other, eager to trade in parties and all-nighters for 'the real world.' But post-grad wasn't the glam life she imagined. Soon buried under a pile of bills, laundry, and two-dollar wine bottles, it quickly became clear that she had no idea what she was doing . But hey, what twentysomething does? In Don't Worry, It Gets Worse , Nugent shares what it takes to make the awkward leap from undergrad to 'mature and responsible adultwho definitely never eats peanut butter straight from the jar and considers it a meal.' From trying to find an apartment on the black hole otherwise known as Craigslist to the creative maneuvering needed to pay off student loans and still enjoy happy hour, Nugent documents the formative moments of being a twentysomething with a little bit of snark and a lot of heart. Based on her popular Tumblr blog The Frenemy, Don't Worry, It Gets Worse is a love note to boozin', bitchin' ladies everywhere. 'Charming . . . Nugent is a confection of fabulosity, a sharp and hilarious mind that falls a little bit in love - and a little bit in hate - with the ridiculous world around her. Her observations on postcollegiate life are somehow both cutting and warm, and all the more wonderful for it.' Sara Barron, author of People Are Unappealing- Even Me 'A bracing whiskey shot of a book. Equal parts hilarious and tender, Don't Worry, It Gets Worse will have you laughing out loud on one page, and tearing up ever so slightly on the next. Alida Nugent is wise beyond her years.' Meghan Laslocky, author of The Little Book of Heartbreak
