After falling for a man who calls her the woman of his dreams, Janet struggles with facing, sharing and accepting herself. Reaching back a decade, the writer travels back to her roots – in Honolulu, Oakland, Dallas and back to Honolulu again – and traces the buds of self-discovery and her road to womanhood.
Janet’s memoir is the journey of how a girl fights family, society, economic and legislative powerlessness and yes, even her own body, to become the person she was meant to be and ultimately step forward to fight for girls and women like her. Her book is a commentary on love, womanhood, self-determination and what it means to bring all of yourself to the table.
Coming February 2014 from Simon & Schuster’s Atria Books imprint.
