Unfortunately, Nora's mother, Alice, is less than thrilled about the trip. She worries about what the future holds for her young, idealistic daughter - and her opinions haven't gone unnoticed. Nora couldn't feel more unsupported by her mother, and in the weeks leading up to the trip, the women are as disconnected as they've ever been. But seconds after saying good-bye to Alice at the airport terminal, Nora hears a voice call out: "Wait! Stop! I'm coming with you!"
Gilmore Girls meets 13 Little Blue Envelopes in this fun, funny, and bittersweet summer adventure from Observer writer and the hilarious voice behind @GuyInYourMFA, Dana Schwartz.

Perfect Beach Read for the Summer
What did you love best about And We're Off?
Both the art references and internet references throughout the book are fresh and funny.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Nora was very relatable and made the story emotionally accessible.
What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?
Fortgang nailed all the accents from the Belgian tour guides to the Irish artists at the art colony.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The climax at the art gallery in Florence and the epilogue resonated the most with me.

A very sweet coming of age story
Nora’s journey through Europe isn’t the kind of tale that’s completely fresh and original, but it feels less derivative than universal. Liking someone who doesn’t feel the same way. Doubting your abilities, direction, and decisions. Fighting with a parent, as much because you understand each other as because you don’t. And We’re Off is brisk, fun, and touching, and I’d recommend it as strongly to a young person contemplating their future as I would a parent trying to connect with their kids.
