Publisher's Synopsis

A feminist coming-of-age comedy that follows the endless humiliations, unrequited obsessions, and all-consuming friendships of fifteen-year-old Evia Birtwhistle as she leads a body hair positive revolution at her school.

Fifteen-year-old Evia Birtwhistle can't seem to catch a break. At home, she must deal with her free-spirited mom, and at school she's the target of ridicule for stating basic truths: like that girls have body hair!

When her BFF Frankie-who has facial hair due to her PCOS-becomes the target of school bullies, Evia decides that enough is enough and creates the 'Hairy Girls' Club.'  

Leading a feminist movement at school is not easy. Boys often look at Evia like she's a total weirdo, and the self-proclaimed 'smoothalicious' girls start their own campaign in retaliation. As Evia struggles with feeling strong enough to lead, and questions how to be a good friend to Frankie, she falls back on the best thing she has-hope. Her message is simple: We CAN make this world a more accepting, less judgmental place for girls to live in…one hairy leg at a time!
