What are people saying...
"In giving us the gift of "Flying Solo" Diane Quintana has provided a wonderful resource for parents and their young adult children alike. As the parents of two sons who have recently graduated from college and moved on, my wife and I are delighted with this clear, compelling, and well organized guide for young adults as they seek to create homes for themselves. Full of creative, practical, wise solutions, this book covers all the basics from the move itself, to best practices for living spaces, budget, important papers, and time management. In short, it is a treasure! With timely personal anecdotes and lovingly accrued wisdom, this book will prove indispensable for all those impacted by--and involved in--the establishment of new lives in new places, whether close by, or far away. Both emotionally sensitive and practically saavy, this guidebook for all such developmental transitions is long overdue, and much appreciated!"

"Flying Solo" is an invaluable resource for young adults who are ready to strike out on their own but need a practical how-to manual to follow along the way. Quintana covers everything from finding a place to live, to packing for the big move, to developing life habits once they are settled into their first home-away-from-home."
