There was so much of a cautionary tone in her writing that I felt like I was watching one of those after-school specials or 50s classroom films where the characters only exist to be shamed by the narrator.

Bad, bad Jane. Jane doesn't know that working at a coffee shop is bad and she should be dating for keepsies!

Jane doesn't realize her ovaries will automagically self destruct on her 35th birthday! Also she is on Facebook WAY too much.

Don't be Jane. Jay's clients do. Then I remembered that most of the people I know who are my age in the US don't have health insurance and can't afford a therapist anyway, so that was probably why.

She's not an economist, but the book would have been vastly enriched by a deeper study of the larger socio-economic contexts that have changed what this decade of life means at this point in time.

Yes, she makes some good points about people not realizing that real life started about 5 years ago, but it doesn't balance out the overall exclusivity of what she's saying, for me.
