By writing her fears (as well as embarrassing and cringeworthy truths) on paper, she never has to face them in real life. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. But yet, this was entirely different as Goffney emphasises that the pressure to abstain from sex comes from the church. I know parenthood will be a journey and Im happy for the examples and lived experience around me that will guide future generations in being better than the ones before. With a powerful subplot about Monique’s estranged sister, and a host of fabulous female characters, including the gynaecologist who states, “No woman should have to go without care.

It was my favourite thing about the book as neither were Monqiue’s parents portrayed as unwilling to listen. In high school, she challenged herself with to-do lists full of risk-taking items like 'hug a random boy' and 'eat a cricket,' which inspired her debut novel, Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry. They have tried 29 times (yes this gets repeated) and had to stop because Monique was in so much pain and didn't want to continue. And acknowledged that you can be wrong regardless of how old you are and it’s never too late to make amends. Especially not because some power-hungry man thinks he knows what’s best, when he doesn’t know diddly-squat about women’s bodies”, this is a dazzlingly refreshing charmer.

With a passion for black social psychology, she moved out of the countryside to attend the University of Texas in Austin, where she still resides.

But he was a brilliant character for Goffney to show how men can grow up with an entitlement towards a woman’s body, due to many factors but patriarchy being one of them.Joya Goffney, author of the acclaimed Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry, delivers a powerful second novel about a preacher's daughter in small-town Texas and her journey toward loving herself and her body, filled with heart, humor, family drama, and a dynamic love triangle. The heroine, Monique, has tried to have sex with her boyfriend nearly 30 times but always has to stop because it's so painful. This is going to be so pivotal for so many young women who are going to finally understand themselves and their bodies for the first time, but also a myriad of other young people who have most likely never been told about the condition. This was a book about a young girl finding herself and taking ownership of her body, and the power that came alongside it allowed her to be free.
