From Barbies to Bras to Botox . . .

Of course you remember your first period, but what about the first time you donned a suit and a pair of sensible pumps for a job interview? How about the first time you were catcalled while walking down the street? The first time you said something that sounded just like it came out of your mother’s mouth?

 This book was fantastic! It was a humorous, and realistic and it felt like the people telling their stories were close to you by the way they were so open about everything. There were really no negatives about this book in my opinion. The only thing I can think of that isn't as positive is that the audience is sexist, but that is unintentional. The book will keep you reading, and makes you laugh all the time. It will bring out your mature side, and could probably answer some questions you have

A collection of first-person accounts of "first time" stories from women of all ages and backgrounds. The topics range from first bras to first loves to first jobs. Although some of the stories reminded me of "Say Anything" moments (anyone remember those?), I enjoyed them, and they all made me smile. It was also interesting to note the generational differences among the stories.

The idea of a bunch of short writings recounting woman's firsts (of many things) sounded like an interesting read. The book itself was awful. The stories were mostly dull and didn't always seem to have an end. Most stories came across shallow. It went from being a comedy in one story to very deep the next. It just didn't work. Skip this one if you can!

OMG, this is one of thee funniest outlooks on every type of "first" a woman could encounter. I found myself always laughing out loud in public and people were looking at me funny.

Excellent!

Very disappointing. Most of the stories were so forgettable. I had to wonder why some of them even made the book. I was expecting to read some really wild, wacky, and or emotional firsts.
