“It’s no time to be 21, and we have Tamara Draut to thank for describing to us, in precise details, the forces arrayed against young people — and what can be done to alleviate the situation.” —Thomas Frank, author of What’s the Matter with Kansas“A convincing, impressively researched call-to-arms. . . . Fast-paced, informative prose, amply supported by statistics.” —San Francisco Chronicle“Persuasive. . . .The 30-something author knows whereof she writes.” —The Washington Post“Draut’s presentation will convince many and may be useful even to those who disagree with her. . . . Parents and young adults definitely need to read this book and have conversations afterward.” —USA Today
