"Hilarious and disgusting, it proves what we do behind closed doors (or in the bathroom) isn't that unique or different from one another. It redefines what it means to be a lady and how it's stupid that we conform to such standards." --Sophie Matthews, Women.com, One of the Best Books of the Year

"This breezy and hilarious book depicts anecdotes of women and the unmentionable things they love doing with their pubic hair, boogers, bodily fluids, and more--all with the deepest of satisfaction, thanks to illustrator Tallulah Pomeroy's flagrant images of women going unabashedly wild." --W, 1 of 7 Inventive New Picture Books No Adult Would Be Ashamed to Read

"Hilarious, honest, and entertaining, Tallulah Pomeroy is a talented artist who turns funny AND REAL female hygiene stories into comical illustrations. You will pass this book around at dinner parties like it's your personal diary." --Women.com, 1 of 10 Books with Covers So Beautiful You Can Judge Them

"It doesn't matter who you are, your age, your nationality, your gender, your habits, your religion and your beliefs. All of that is not important. Whoever you are, please, do yourself a favor and read this book . . . A Girl's Guide to Personal Hygiene: True Stories, Illustrated will broaden your horizons. Even if you're a neat person, you should read this. This book is about all women, deconstructing silly stereotypes." --Books Turn You On

"An indelicate, necessary treasure--its gross joys deliver humanizing relief."--Alissa Nutting, author of Made for Love and Tampa

A Girl's Guide to Personal Hygiene is everything I never knew I wanted: a disgusting, hilarious, and honest book that pays tribute to the female body and all of its habits and suppurations. It is delightfully and uncomfortably relatable and I love it with my whole self--heart, sweat, bowels, and all."--Carmen Maria Machado, author of Her Body and Other Parties

"This book should be tucked under punch bowls at every debutante ball and bundled with boxes of Girl Scout cookies from here on out." --Amelia Gray, author of Gutshot and Isadora
