An Atlas, A Necktie & Other Concerns by Lauren Greenwood

Four lifelong 30-something friends, each with very different takes on how to lead the best life, are locked in a strange escape room. There’s the sensible nine-to-fiver, the nonstop partier, the ambitious artiste and the peacekeeper with a potentially life-changing secret. Despite their one-of-a-kind love for one another, they can't seem to stop holding each other back. But if they can just 4-7-8 and put their longstanding beefs aside to solve the riddles, they might just break free.
