This book is fantastic to boost your self-esteem, or to help find your tribe. Contributor bios and blog information with every chapter makes it very easy to find and follow them for more tales from their respective and wide-spread experiences. A great read to gift in a get one-give one kind of way. Before I had a chance to crack mine open, a friend way nicer than me had a signed copy sent. She's so perfect.
I typed "LOL" for the first time in my life. Gross, now I feel dirty...
I can't review every essay, but here are some highlights that immediately spring to mind:
*Stacey Gill's hysterical account of almost being forever stolen from us by a techno-music-obsessed-possible-serial killer physical therapist- I'm so thankful she survived, because I need to read more about Jersey. She is a fabulous writer, and I must have more!
*Tara Wood's description of her smoothie-tastic husband, where I learned my new favorite words (and what I think should be a punk band, because hell yes), "Apocalyptic Diarrhea." Tara is hilarious and I want to find the boy that was mean to her and kick his teeth in. Not gonna lie.
*I completely related to Deva Dalporto- the perfect mom thing has always been just beyond my grasp. I would have totally been your friend Deva- puke covered shirt and all.
*We should all have a wonderful husband like Kathryn Leehane...such a fabulous story. Side note: I have a Greek mother-in-law....I'm pretty sure SHE is the devil. Let's compare notes...
*Jenn Mann's hysterical essay about her dirty pillows, her bodacious ta-tas, her gerber servers, um...I could go on all day with boob euphemisms because I'm incredibly immature....but here's the kicker: Jen Mann's story was also poignant and so touching...and I won't spoil it for you, but I got a little teary eyed at the end. Thanks Jen Mann, I hate myself a little less today because of your story- OK, a lot less...
Who among us hasn't struggled to be perfect, and come up painfully short? It's what we do as women, always comparing ourselves, criticizing ourselves, hearing that little voice (who I imagine looks like a cross between Donald Trump and the nun in 4th grade who pulled my pony tail when I got my times tables wrong) any way, that little voice that says, "not good enough, too fat, your boobs are weird, you look like an obese hobo in your swimsuit, you're getting old, etc, etc, etc..." Well, well, well... little voice, THIS BOOK is going to shut your jerk mouth. (#jerkmouth). I promise. Nothing better than listening to the words of hilarious, wise, strong women to lift you up and empower you.
Thanks ladies, so much love for this book!
