Reviews and Endorsements

‘Thoughtful … a painfully honest exploration of what it means to be an adult.’ - James McConnachie, The Sunday Times

‘Moya Sarner has written a book about growing up which also happens to be a book about being alive: about managing pain and loss, about uncertainty and change, about humility and courage, about finding meaning and acceptance. She is asking all the right questions, in our uncertain times, and her search for answers is inspiring.

Writing that is full of insight and depth, and always feels refreshing. This book is invigorating and thought-provoking, rigorous, elegant, and compassionate. It is about thinking, healing, and connecting. We need more like it.’ - Tom Hiddleston

‘Searching and consoling, When I Grow Up interrogates the beliefs we hold about life’s stages, and the labels we yearn for and resist. It is a generous, illuminating exploration of what it means to grow up, why we want to, and how to know when you’ve done it.’ - Nell Stevens, author of Bleaker House

‘A deeply compassionate book that made me think differently about not only what it means to be an adult but also what it means to be a human being.’ - Imogen West-Knights

‘Incredibly insightful and helpful. Everyone could learn something from this book.’ - Olivia Petter, author of Millennial Love
