An irreverent, feminist fairy tale for adults that teaches us to care less about what others think.
This is the story of a brave young girl, Elodie-Rose, who one day decides to change the world and keep all her fucks in her basket.
Wait a minute. You’re confused. What are fucks, you ask? It’s quite simple, really. Fucks are her self-esteem; all the happy, sad and wonderful thoughts that sit in her basket. They sit in every girl’s basket. And every girl must give these fucks away every time someone asks.
One day Elodie-Rose decides to break rank and find out what happens if those fucks stay where they are…
The Little Girl Who Gave Zero Fucks is a must read, an adult, feminist fairy tale.
It’s told in rhyme and is the tale of Elodie-Rose who decides her fucks are hers and hers alone and she will not give them to anyone.
It’s about self esteem, of being yourself and not to just follow the herd to keep the peace……or wear the right clothes, or think the same things, or even if your toes are fat!!!!!!
Beautifully illustrated too, I love the Beyoncé cameo…..even Frida Kahlo makes an appearance. I love it and have ordered a copy for my daughter and her daughter too.
Thank you to Anne Cater and Random Things Tours for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour, for the promotional materials and an eARC of the book. This is my honest, unbiased review.
