AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Ziggy Klein (named after the gender-bending icon David Bowie) has a lot on her mind. It's confusing for any girl living in a culture where the opposition leader might pinch the female Prime Minister's bum; where your mum might demand your dad tie her up but stay connected to his heart chakra; where girls at your school assembly perform racy dance routines to the theme song from Schindler's List, and your best friends seek fame as feminists with perfect asses.

'Fifteen-year-old Ziggy is dealing with her late-blooming, yet burgeoning sexuality and, simultaneously, dawning adulthood. But do not be mistaken—this is no ordinary coming-of-age story. It's literary satire at its most dexterous, capturing and commenting on many elements of the zeitgeist-intersectional feminism, technology's effects on teen culture, gender and sexual politics, race, and political correctness—with the one-two punch of Ziggy's teenaged perspective and Lexi Freiman's sharp wit.'
