A New Yorker, trying not to be jaded, accompanies a cash-strapped pot grower to a 'Clothing Optional Resort' in California. A nerdy high schooler has her first sexual experience at geology camp. On the night of her father's funeral, a college student watches an old video of her Bat Mitzvah, hypnotized by the image of the girl she used to be . . .

Frank and irreverent, these stories offer a singular view of growing up (or not) and finding love (or not) in today's uncertain landscape.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The thing that makes this book so special is the punch-packing depth of these meticulously crafted pieces. Rebecca Schiff is a human spotlight and I will look wherever she points from now on * Sloane Crosley, author of The Clasp *
Rebecca Schiff is one of the best young writers out there. Her stories are sharp, subtle, funny and incredibly moving * Sam Lipsyte *
I'd like to watch the faces of people reading it as they shift between awe and admiration and shock. This writer is freaking good * Ben Marcus *
At once acerbic and heartbreaking, Schiff's fictional plots draw on the modern female experience * refinery29 *
Schiff has an almost Nabokovian boldness and crispness of phrase * New York Times *
A great collection of moments * Big Issue *
A brave, intimate scrapbook of loss . . . powerful and poignant . . . a daring appraisal of adulthood, sexuality and death amid uncertainty and self-doubt * Financial Times *
A wildly assured debut short-story collection * O Magazine *
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll cringe from red-faced embarrassment. Schiff gets at the relentlessness of being a young woman dealing with (or, hell, even being ambivalent about) love, dating, and grief, all while finding deep, sometimes dark, laughter in it * Marie Claire *
A fresh voice well worth listening to * Atlantic *
Schiff's buzzy, concisely wise style is a perfect medium for the trappings of womanhood in modernity . . . Schiff's prose is loaded with cadences, pitfalls and punchlines . . . electrifying * The Spectator *
