Milly Melendez Hates Adulting: A Novel
At twenty-six years old, Milagros "Milly" Melendez is, technically and legally, an adult. But she hates having to adult. She's been adulting ever since Papi died almost twenty years ago. Her reward? A perfect job, her perfect man, and the perfect wedding. As close to a perfect life as she can have without her dad.
But then her cousin pitches a preposterous idea: a double wedding. As Milly scrambles to keep her wedding plans intact, she also makes a decision that could cost her job. Things couldn't possibly get worse, right? That's what Milly thinks when something unexpected happens that changes everything.
Now Milly has a choice to make. Does she risk losing the people she loves most, as well as everything she's worked so hard for, just to maintain her adulting act? Or does she accept that, maybe, she's just not done growing up?
