From the Back Cover
These true stories will make you laugh out loud, and some will make you cry. "Do Tampons Take Your Virginity?" is a powerful, gut-wrenching memoir about what happens when you grow up in an insane Catholic family. Often surprisingly funny, the author's candid writing exposes the endurance it takes to survive a stifling, oppressive upbringing. It's an emotional roller coaster from start to finish. Each essay is written in sharp episodic chapters to mimic the author's real experiences, which range from brutal to hilarious, and everything in between.
*Note: This book contains adult language, sexual content, and adult themes.
