I’ve only just begun to share the wisdom of this book with my Youth Group in church. But, already, it’s wisdom and clarity of thought are giving us much to consider and explore. I look forward to much more discussion and definition with my Youth… I love this book – B. Pelham

Jen never tries to speak universally. She speaks for herself, clearly and informally, thinking out loud about decision making, simplicity, honesty, body ethics, sex, vibrators, relationships, addiction, self-image, pooping, death, and more. Her own thoughts are salted with quotes from Bertrand Russell to Britney Spears, including some keepers I hadn’t seen before. The net effect is a conversation about everything with an intelligent, unpretentious friend. – Dale McGowan – Parenting Beyond Belief
