Description: Youd think a Miss America swimsuit winner would feel completely confident about her body, right? Not always! So I decided to write the book I wish Id had as a teen and in collegean honest, funny, practical, medically accurate, totally reassuring guide to how womens bodies actually look, smell, feel, behave, and change. Alongside real-deal photographs of women just like you and me (no airbrushing, no supermodels, no kidding) youll find medical pictures of things you need to be able to recognize, true confessions by yours truly, and the encouragement you need to appreciate the uniqueness, strength, and beauty of your body. What are you waiting for? Nancy Redd From fashion magazines to taboo Web sites, curious young women have access to tons of old wives tales about and thousands of airbrushed and inaccurate images of the female bodymisinformation and harmful portrayals that can lead to low self-esteem, self-destructive acts, or even disturbing plastic surgery procedures. Teaming up with a leading physician specializing in adolescent health issues, Harvard graduate and former Miss Virginia Nancy Redd now offers a down-to-earth, healing, and reassuring response to those damaging myths. In Body Drama, Redd gives girls insight into the issues theyre often too ashamed to raise with a doctor or parent. She also reveals her own experiences with the culture of American beauty, and shows readers all the many versions of normal. From body hair and bras, to acne and weight issues, along with crucial issues such as the importance of a healthy self image, Body Dramais a groundbreaking book packed with informative fast facts, FYIs, how-tos, and moving personal anecdotes as well as hundreds of un-retouched photographs. A highly visual book, its the first of its kind for women: filled with real information and real photographs of real bodies, to celebrate all our different shapes and sizes. Named by Glamourmagazine as one of Americas top-ten college women most likely to succeedat anything, Redd has spent the most recent years of her life on a mission to tackle the issues least discussed but most significant in young womens lives. Celebrating the many versions of normal, and replacing seriously erroneous information with the honest, medically proven truth in a language all girls can understand, Body Dramadares to empower a new generationwith facts instead of fantasies, and the priceless gift of self-knowledge.
