"Charming...Nugent is a confection of fabulosity, a sharp and hilarious mind that falls a little bit in love-and a little bit in hate-with the ridiculous world around her. Her observations on post-collegiate life are somehow both cutting and warm, and all the more wonderful for it. "
-Sara Barron, author of People Are Unappealing: Even Me

"A bracing whiskey shot of a book. Equal parts hilarious and tender, DON'T WORRY, IT GETS WORSE will have you laughing out loud on one page, and tearing up ever so slightly on the next. Alida Nugent is wise beyond her years."

-Cosmopolitan, "Books to Pack in Your Beach Bag"

"Nugent's voice comes across as loyal and tough, and her sense of humor and authenticity will appeal to readers going through related chapters in their own post-college lives. This book, like one of its myriad cocktails, is dry, dirty and surprisingly refreshing."

"If Liz Lemon's younger sister existed, she'd be just like Alida Nugent: a little bit awkward, perpetually single, and defiantly weird."
-Book Riot

-Brooklyn Daily Eagle
