Gr. 10-12. Women who have wrestled with the discomfort of not conforming to standard ideas of beauty and social mores express their opinions in this collection of essays that celebrates the empowerment of those who resist the status quo and ultimately reach self-acceptance. Topics range widely from weight to ethnicity to gender to sexual preference, and the writers come from a rainbow of cultural backgrounds. Latina Marisa Navarro writes about the suppression of sexuality necessary to be the good daughter in her family; Lisa Jervis discusses the underlying politics of nose jobs; Nomy Lamm demands acceptance for being "a freak . . . anarchist dyke . . and a total hottie." Other writers confront anorexia, sex changes, and dieting, and one celebrates sexual abstinence. Twenty-eight thought-provoking essays for today's young women. Denise Wilms

-Kate Dillon's piece on life before and after becoming a plus-size model, and
-a thoughtful essay by a woman who worked for awhile as a stripper and actually felt empowered and liberated by it, as opposed to objectified as we might think
Overall, I recommend this book but think it would've been richer if some of the pieces had been left out.
