Where’s My Wine Glass?!, Getting Your Kid to College Without Losing Your Mind is a frolicking collection of humorous essays for parents of children who are prepping for, leaving for, or attending college. As a long-time college coach, private tutor, and parent of two failure-to-launch college graduates, Linda Presto’s sarcastic voice, no-nonsense tone, and years of experience deliver a much-needed respite from the insanity and competition of acceptance to college. Parents in this stage need a laugh and some straight talk about the process and its pitfalls. Linda is a self-deprecating, yet knowledgeable narrator, who takes parents on a journey through the highlight reel of what they hope will end in smarter kids… and less laundry. Addressing subjects like college visits, university rankings, and empty nest syndrome, Linda’s personal accounts and anecdotes from years of working with students and parents shed light on the universal nature of rearing children and the parents who only want the best for them. That and they want them off their couch!
