From the publisher:

A riveting anthology of real-life stories from women writers who celebrate and meditate upon their acts of defiance.

The art of the well-placed expletive. An illicit pas de deux. Telling "Bad Mommy" secrets. Royally screwing over an ex. An intoxicating blackout. Stealing a Girl Scout badge—and wearing it proudly.

Each tale is indelibly unique, united in the thrill (and spill) of the confessional. For some, the story begins way back. Susan Cheever: banned from the playground at age three. Erica Jong's "dirty" secret: she was a good girl—merely impersonating a bad girl. As for Ann Hood: the meaningless lie is transformational.

For readers tired of paying their bills dutifully, driving safely, eating organically, and other forms of mindfulness, this is a not-to-be-missed secret-telling, soul-baring fest for the prodigal daughter in all of us.

Including pieces by Mary Roach, Pam Houston, Maggie Estep, Roxanna Robinson, Lolly Winston, and more.
