The audacious, savagely funny debut of a writer of razor-sharp wit and surprising tenderness: a collection of stories that gives us a new take on adolescence, death, sex, on being Jewish-ish, and on finding one's way as a young woman in the world.

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 ever-uncertain landscape. How to form lasting connections in a world saturated by insincerity? How to transcend the indignities of middle school? How to build a strong sense of self while also trying to figure out online dating? In its bone-dry humor, its pithy observations, and its thrilling ability to unmask the most revealing moments of human interaction--no matter how fleeting--this collection announces a new talent to be reckoned with.
