Raw, sharply funny and heartfelt, Wish You Were Here is a girl’s own adventure with bite, a hilarious rollercoaster ride that will make you itch to escape the everyday and hit the road with this irresponsible and irresistible adventurer. Reeling from the devastating collapse of her marriage to the man she thought was the love of her life, after a late night enjoying smashing all her china a little too much, Sheridan Jobbins decides she needs to do something drastic to save her sanity.
Why we love it: Escapism is best enjoyed vicariously through the adventures of others ... Sheridan Jobbins delivers a modern tale of adventure and discovery in her memoir Wish You Were Here. Sassy, irreverent, and warm-hearted, this real-life road trip tale will crack you up – and have you longing to hit your own private Route 66 in a sexy 1989 Chevy Camero. Jobbins wheels along hilariously: from self-mocking post-divorce despair into a gut-bustingly funny new romance. Put simply, Wish You Were Here is an absolute hoot.
