Know someone who's about to graduate college? Stressing, lying awake at night thinking, Now what? For me it was business as usual. Chillin', mowwin', gamin' at my mama's house with my friend Cornelius. But then one day my mama was like, Get a job, glommer, or you're out. So I went ahead and did that and now, 10 years later, all is right as rain.

I understand other kids don't have it so lucky though. Some college grads might even need a little help sorting shit out after they flip the tassel. So Joshua Miller, Patrick Casey, and Gemma Correll wrote and illustrated and book for them. Oh, the Places You'll Eff Up: A Parody for Your Twenties gives recent grads some insight into what to expect from the real world now that the 4-years-flowing teat of academia has run dry.

Congrats! Congrats!

You've made it so far.
You're an adult now,
you're even allowed
in a bar.

But long before you're
going to succeed,
You'll eff shit up,
100% guaranteed.

If you're looking for a graduation gift, Oh, the Places You'll Eff Up has gotten pretty universal praise from its Amazon reviewers. Who could all be the authors' parents eager to help reverse their own kids' eff ups, but hey. I'm trying to help you out with gifts, not help some punk kid with life.
