"In all honesty, Girlhood is a devastating autobiographical essay collection. Womanhood as a subject of metamorphosis and hurt is nothing new, but Febos’ prose and narrative voice is a trustworthy source to allow to break down to. It is never one note, or unnecessarily painful in what she discloses. It is reflective like a beetle’s wing."
A gripping set of stories about the forces that shape girls and the adults they become. A wise and brilliant guide to transforming the self and our society.
