How To Be a Woman

How To Be a Woman - Caitlin Moran Reading How To Be a Woman was a strange experience. I could have done without the first quarter of the book, and the rest of it was uneven and scattered all over the place, but I got a lot out of certain essays -- like the abortion-centric chapter -- and ended up highlighting a bunch of stuff in one or two sections just because I like Moran's phrasing. Still, I wouldn't say I loved it. Three stars seems about right.
