A brash new collection of fifteen original stories about girls who stand against convention, and girls who wish they could. In turn hilarious, edgy, comforting and intense, the collection is about holding back and letting loose, about sex and glamour and common sense. The girls in these stories have to deal with whatever life decides to throw at them. Some approach their challenges in startling ways. The innovative stories are all about taking pride in wearing our bodies just the way they are. Touching on a range of issues from cosmetic surgery and makeup, to body-image and sexuality, these stories challenge stifling mainstream notions of beauty and femininity.

Toronto writer and poet Deb Loughead is the author of sixteen books for children and young adults, including Time & Again. Jocelyn Shipley's books for teens include Getting a Life, Cross My Heart and Seraphina's Circle. She lives in Toronto, Ontario, and on Vancouver Island.
