Summary
A compelling and often quirky look at what it means to be an imperfect but unapologetic woman living a (mostly) magnificent life. With humour, compassion, and insight, this book explores the personal beliefs, hidden traumas, and social pressures that shape not just women's feelings about their bodies, but also their confidence, choices, and relationships. This provocative, enchanting, and sometimes laugh-out-loud look at the imperfect path women take to step into their own power, presence, and ownership
