Speaking of which, I’m crossing my fingers that the book tour will bring her to The Regulator here in Durham and to Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh!

This book’s going to be a best-seller and Renee’s going to be on talk shows with Sia and Idris Elba, I just know it!

From the author:

This book would be perfect for:
– Women and adolescent girls who want to worry more about the shape the world’s in than the shape of their bodies.
– Parents who want to think about how to raise healthy daughters despite a toxic beauty culture.
– Anyone interested in pushing back against a culture that defines women by the way they look instead of what they say and do.
