Publisher: HarperCollins Release date: 2020-05-19

Description

Birth control. Body hair removal cream. Boobs. Its all weird, but also pretty normal.Navigating racial identity, gender roles, workplace dynamics, and beauty standards, Mia Mercado's hilarious essay collection explores the contradictions of being a millennial woman, which usually means being kind of a weirdo. Whether its spending $30 on a candle that smells like an ocean that doesnt exist, offering advice on how to ask about someones race (spoiler: just dont, please?), quitting a job that makes you need shots of whiskey on your lunch break, or finding a more religious experience in the skincare aisle at Target than your hometown Catholic church, Mia brilliantly unpacks what it means to be a professional, absurdly beautiful, horny, cute, gross human. Essays include: Depression Isnt a Competition but Why Arent I Winning? My Dog Explains My Weekly Schedule Mustache Lady White Friend Confessional Treating Objects Like Women With sharp humor and wit, Mia shares the awkward, uncomfortable, surprisingly ordinary parts of life, and shows us why its strange to feel fine and fine to feel strange.
