    1. I just started reading this book and the two submissions by Heidi Grogan moved me to tears. Especially her story "Scar to Sacrament" which kept me on the edge of my seat as I moved from laughter to tears, and felt deeply the self doubt surrounding her decision of whether or not to have reconstructive surgery. This book should be read by every woman as it displays the kaleidoscope of experience surrounding a part of our body that shapes so much of our personal identity.

    2. Maybe a few too many cancer stories for my liking. It got old, fast. I was hoping for a more balanced, diverse range of perspectives.

    3. This book features many amazing stories by fellow writers. It is filled with humour and heartbreak. I loved reading this book and I feel honoured to be apart of it.
