You are more than what your body can do for him”, while Monique’s relationship with Reggie will truly make your heart sing. This is a powerful story about the journey towards loving yourself, told with heart, humour and a delicious love triangle. I had no idea this religious piece could be a cause, but I dealt with something similar (albeit less extreme) and it became apparent after I got married.

If that wasn’t enough, it’s also infused with feminist magic - what begins as a 17-year-old’s quest to “fix” herself to get her guy back becomes a joyous journey of self-discovery that sees a sister doing it for herself. Not only did I love the characters but the overarching themes concerning female empowerment and the notion that your body is your own are both incredibly powerful and important messages for young readers and I think this would be a great book to accompany any sex education curriculum in schools.

And most importantly, it was this idea of how much fear can try to dictate our life and how it can stop us from achieving everything that is out there waiting for us. like this is something i look for in a ya book, something with plot and something that makes you feel. Thanks to Goffney's superb storytelling and dazzling prose, this candid exploration of a sensitive subject is also a heartfelt, funny, and irresistible read. At the start you're like "oh no, they're those types of parents" but as the book goes on you see that they're also not who they seem.

Monique is clearly very uncomfortable with some of the treatments her friends find for her, but she forces herself to do them anyway because she sees them as necessary for the heteronormative sex she desires.I quite literally just finished reading this maybe five minutes ago so this is me rambling, but wow, what a lovely book! There was so much he taught her and so much you could tell she simple learned from being around him and Sasha. The storyline also couples this with purity culture, and growing up in a household dominated by standards set by the Church. The flow was excellent from beginning to end and thought the arc of Monique, her parents, her friends, were well done. I laughed a few times and also had so much sympathy for the main character Monique, otherwise known as Mo.

This grittily provocative debut explores the horrors of self-harm and the healing power of artistic expression. Reeling from the breakup, Monique learns she has vaginismus—her vaginal muscles contract involuntarily, preventing penetration. I knew about vaginismus before, but I had no idea vaginal dilators were a thing, so I learned something new.Not that there's anything wrong with estrangement or cutting off a community, but I appreciated the nuance and hopeful loose ends. The friendships and sisterhood shown in this book was so needed and I loved how by the end of this it wasn’t just focused on the romance but about curating an entire community. Vaginismus – is the body’s automatic reaction to the fear of some or all types of vaginal penetration.
