About the Book

We've all had one, whether we like it or not. No, it's not a bad date, a pimple that will not go away, or an annoying mother-in-law. It's a childhood. Who hasn't hung helplessly from the chin-up bar in grade school during the annual Presidential Fitness Test or magically transformed into a forensic pathologist during a frog dissection in seventh grade biology class or, worse yet, endured an uncomfortable birds and bees lesson from their parents? In her third book in the Wacky Womanhood series, Vicky DeCoster shares her latest compilation of hilarious essays that look back to a simpler time when trying new things was a way of life; bullies ruled like kings; and parents reveled in torturing tiny versions of themselves. As DeCoster recalls her side-splitting childhood, she also shares inspirational life lessons learned along the way, encouraging others to look at their own youth in a completely different way. From Diapers to Dorkville offers a refreshingly wicked glimpse into one girl's true adventures and shares how she somehow survived long enough to sashay her way straight into the wacky world of womanhood.
