Summary
"You'll Grow Out of It hilariously and candidly explores the journey of the twenty-first century woman. As both a tomboy and a late bloomer, comedian Jessi Klein grew up feeling more like an outsider than a participant in the rites of modern femininity. In You'll Grow Out of It, Klein offers - through an incisive collection of real-life stories - a relentlessly funny-yet-poignant take on a variety of topics she has experienced along her strange journey to womanhood and beyond. These include her 'transformation from Pippi Longstocking-esque tomboy to are-you-a-lesbian-or-what tom man,' attempting to find watchable porn, and identifying the difference between being called 'ma'am' and 'miss' ('Miss sounds like you weigh ninety-nine pounds'). Raw, relatable, and consistently hilarious, You'll Grow Out of It is a one-of-a-kind book by a singular and irresistible comic voice"-- Provided by publisher.
