Overview
The newest illustrated poetry collection in beloved author Judith Viorst's "decade" series (from It's Hard to Be Hip Over Thirty to Unexpectedly Eighty), exploring, with her signature savvy and humor, what it means to be an impending nonagenarian.

In Nearing Ninety, bestselling author Judith Viorst candidly shares the complicated joys and everyday tribulations that await us at the age of ninety, all with a large dose of humor and an understanding that nothing--well, almost nothing--in life should be taken too seriously. While she struggles to make it to midnight on New Year's Eve, while she's starting to hear more eulogies than symphonies, while she'll forever be disheartened by what she weighs (and forever unable to stop weighing herself), there is plenty to cherish at ninety: hanging out with the people she loves. Playing a relentless game of Scrabble. And still sleeping tush-to-tush with the same man to whom she's been married for sixty years.

Accompanied by Laura Gibson's whimsical illustrations, Nearing Ninety's amusing and touching reflections make this collection relatable to readers of all ages. With the wisdom and spunk of someone who's seen it all, Viorst gently reminds us that everybody gets old, and that the best medicine at any age is laughter.
