|Synopsis||"I identified early on that my role in relationships was the sidekick, the platonic female cast member in an all-male production, or the friend who was relied on selectively when other options were unavailable. I was the comic relief or the stand-in, never the lead. I knew this, I felt it, I wrote it down, but I didn't dare say it aloud because that would prove that I cared and caring wasn't cool."
From the small town in regional Australia where she was told that 'girls can't play the drums' to New York City and back again, Brodie has spent her life searching screens, books, music and magazines for bodies like hers, girls who loved each other, and women who didn't follow the silent instructions to shrink or hide that they've received since literal birth. This is the story of life as a young woman through the lenses of feminism and pop culture.
Brodie's story will make you re-evaluate the power of pop culture in our lives - and maybe you will laugh and cry along the way.
At times while reading this book I had to pause and just sit and think because it hit so close to home for me. I've already read it twice! Also I posted about it on my Instagram and Brodie Lancaster liked it sooo Brodie Lancaster is cool and you should read her book.
Brodie Lancaster is hilarious and eloquent and just gets everything right in this memoir. I've pretty much exclusively been reading memoirs for the last couple months (not on purpose, mind you) so it takes a lot to stick out as a winner.
This book is a winner.
Brodie's wit, humour, and spot on reflections culminate in a wonderful exploration of feminism and pop culture. She made me question my place in the world while simultaneously cracking up at where I thought I was previously.
The thing that really got to me was the shared experiences I have with Brodie as an early 2000s music freak and emo kid - if any of you reading this know what I'm talking about then I urge you to read this book! You will laugh, you will gasp, and if you were an emo kid like me you will feel even more embarrassed than you have in the past (is that possible??).
