“Pretty girls had to appear as though they weren’t trying to be pretty…pretty girls also had to have a self-depreciating sense of humor and point out when they had a blistering pimple and talk about their explosive diarrhea to assure other girls that they weren’t interested in the role of man-eating minx. Because if others sensed any level of deliberate prowess, they’d end you, and you could forget about the guy you wanted. The snarling force of a pack of girls could wither the most screaming boner”. (Jessica Knoll, Luckiest Girl Alive)
P.S. I recommend this book to any and all East Coast millennial women; witty, hilarious, acidic, moving. Honestly one of the best books I’ve read all year and I’m doing a master’s in comparative literature!
