When Parents Text: So Much Said... So Little Understood

by Sophia Fraioli and Lauren Kaelin

A collection of insanely funny texts between parents and their kids, When Parents Text is a surprisingly affecting window into the complicated time when parents aren’t ready to let go and kids aren’t ready to be let go.

The parents are well-meaning but hopeless, silly and a little corny, and often befuddled by technology. The kids are bewildered yet patient; stoic in the face of their parents' goofiness. And the authors, two recent college graduates, have an unerring editorial instinct to select the funniest, sweetest, quirkiest, most-telling exchanges of them all.
