Read full description of the books:
Though quite dated, this is a fun look at the maturation process in women; discovering that what once was fun, what once was a priority, is no longer the case. Dating, getting married, having children and discovering that the world is a much different place than it appeared in your youth is truly an awakening that troubles many of us. I think that these poems offer somewhat of a timeless observation of this age. And I love that Judith Viorst created poetry books for every decade of an adult woman's life.
I've already read Unexpectedly Eighty: And Other Adaptations, I'm Too Young To Be Seventy: And Other Delusions, Suddenly Sixty And Other Shocks Of Later Life, Forever Fifty, How Did I Get to Be 40 & Other Atrocities, and It's Hard to Be Hip Over Thirty. While this book seems to have several poems that are repeated in subsequent editions, I really liked them all. I certainly hope she writes a book about the nineties!
