Kelly Williams Brown, author of "Adulting," is the voice of her generation. Unfortunately, that voice is telling her she should make a souffle and take her LSATs. She shouldn't listen to the voice, and neither should you. Kelly Williams Brown should be writing: period. Anything else is just robbery. "Adulting" is hilarious and filled with keen insight, a terrific dance down the road of everyday insecurity.
