Review: My Little Red Book by Rachel Kauder Nalebuff
No matter where she lives in the world, a girl greets her first period
with a mixture of dismay, joy, relief and apprehension. Even if it is an
essential rite of passage for all women, the event is often shrouded in
embarrassment and talk about periods is shared in hushed whispers.
Until now. An amazingly simple idea—essays about first periods from a
variety of women—forms the basis of My Little Red Book edited by young Rachel Kauder Nalebuff who will soon start her undergraduate studies at Yale.
