‘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
‘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.

‘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.’

‘Relevant. Apt. Hilarious ... One of the best things about these shared secrets is that every one is shared with fascination, joy and pleasure in the female body and what it does ... The book is a celebration of women in all their messy glory — and a reminder than women are messy and glorious.’
‘More than anything though, the book allows us to entertain the idea of being less shameless about what we do with our bodies … It’s uncomfortably comforting to know that you are definitely disgusting – but at least you’re not the only one.’
Vanessa Giron, Kill Your Darlings
‘Challenging the assumption that women should always be ‘ladylike’, this kooky book brings together warts-and-all stories about the female body and is as disgusting as it is hilarious.’
'I hugely recommend this book for any teenage girl or mother of a teenage girl: it's a pleasingly cheerful and disgusting book about bum-hair, snot, farts, periods and poo: it treats the lady-body like a joyful zoo. Super-chill and funny.'
