Smothered
Smothered: A Novel | Autumn Chiklis
4 posts | 5 read | 6 to read
A humorous debut crossover young adult novel about what happens when entering the "real world" means moving back in with your mother, inspired by actress and celebrity Autumn Chiklis' real life. Eloise Lou Hansen is graduating from Columbia University summa cum laude, and she's ready to conquer the world. Just a few minor problems: she has no job, no prospects, and shes moving back into her childhood bedroom. Lou is grimly determined to stick to a rigorous schedule to get a job and get out of her parents house. Shelly Mama Shell Hansen, on the other hand, is ecstatic, and just as determined to keep her at home. Who else will help her hide her latest binge-shopping purchases from her husband, go to SoulCycle with her, and hold her hand during Botox shots? Smothered is a hilarious roman clef told via journal entries, text messages, emails, bills, receipts, tweets, doctors prescriptions, job applications and rejections, parking tickets, and pug pictures, chronicling the year that Lou moves back home after college. Told from Lous point-of-view, Smothered tells the story of two young(ish) women, just trying to get it right, and learning that just because we all grow up doesnt mean we necessarily have to grow old. (After all, what is Juvaderm for?)
