challenging dark emotional hopeful inspiring sad tense fast-paced
This book is truly phenomenal. It speaks to the fears of every woman and tells her she is not defined by them. It says our names and who we are is important. It also calls out systemic failure in systems we are taught to trust, saying excuses are not enough. Truth is truth, even when noone cam see it. I hope this book was healing for Chanel and she is able to continue to be a force to be reckoned with for future generations to remember.

emotional inspiring reflective sad medium-paced

5.0

This book is powerful, beautifully written, and both validating and infuriating. I had to stop reading at times because I was so angry, and of course it made me cry (though not as much as I would have anticipated, honestly). I got to listen to Chanel Miller read the book out loud, and I'm so glad I did. She reads it more slowly than I would have read a physical copy, and I'm grateful for spending the extra time sitting with this book and what happens in it. It made me realize things about some loved ones that I'd never considered before, and it made me realize things about myself, too. I'd recommend this book to anyone (and also recommend you follow @chanel_miller on Instagram because her comics are funny and inspirational and I just love the things she creates).
