Umm, I guess you can tell what this book is about by its cover. I interlibrary loaned it and didn't end up finishing it. The editor collected stories from women about their first period. I was hoping to laugh more, but after the first ten stories, they all started sounding the same. I skimmed the rest looking for women who live in different cultures. Those were interesting, but the American stories weren't fascinating at all. I guess all women are more alike than we think!
