This book is for you if:

• You dread family occasions because relatives will ask you what you’re doing with your life
• Social media leaves you with the miserable suspicion that most of your friends have more fun/a better relationship/more money/a better house/more friends than you do
• Watching sitcoms from your adolescence on Netflix makes everything feel better
• You’ve ended up in a job that has absolutely nothing to do with what you dreamed of doing when you were six (or eleven, or sixteen)
• You still keep loads of stuff at your parent’s house

Sooner or later, most of us find that adult life is not all it’s cracked up to be. At some point most of us take a look at where we’ve got to and wonder: “Is this it? Why did no one warn me that adult life was going to be this… difficult?”

Rachel Jones is 20-something, trying to keep it together, and ready to say what we’re all thinking. Whether you’re just feeling a bit lost or having a full “quarter life crisis”, this funny, honest, hopeful book reveals the difference Jesus makes to the angst of adulting.

For a generation in the grip of the 'quarter-life crisis' too often cynics roll their eyes whilst others merely reinforce their blindspots. By contrast this book engages brilliantly with compassion, clarity, wit and most importantly much-needed, Christ-centred, grace-filled truth. This book is a gem - read it, share it with others and realise the difference Jesus makes!

Is this it? It’s a question most of us have asked ourselves at some point in our lives. In a truthful, personal, and humorous way, this book answers that question. Rachel masterfully communicates the joys and challenges we face in our twenties and intertwines reminders of Biblical truths which we can stake our lives upon. If you are in your twenties or know someone who is, I encourage them to read this book and be reminded of God’s goodness to us in each season of life.

For many of us, our twenties bring a swirl of change. Jobs change, cities change, relationships change, ambitions change. We're forced to change too, no longer able to delay the realities of adult life. It's little wonder that such an overwhelming decade rakes up disappointment, rootlessness and questions of just where we fit in. Rachel Jones empathetically shares how looking to Jesus not only comforts us but also frees us to make most of these years of flux.
