Graduates in Wonderland was such a good surprise. I’ve been out of college for seven years now so I thought the story would be too young for me but I felt just the opposite when I started reading.

After graduating from college in Boston, Jessica and Rachel continue their solid friendship over weekly emails as they move around the globe from China and Australia to New York, Paris, and London for jobs, grad school, and love. I admired how they were so honest in their writing no matter how personal their lives became and they are really funny too! Not only did their stories remind me of when I moved to London after my college graduation and all the excitement, nerves, and adventures that came with it but I also felt like I was in on their genuine friendship. And of course, I developed some wanderlust – a good sign of a great travel memoir.
