#GIRLHOOD by Cat Hepburn
This female-centred poetry book explores the joy and pain of growing up. Hepburn's writing deconstructs and satirises the milestones, conventions and pressures that girls and young women face in a bittersweet and sharply funny way.
It was adapted into a successful Edinburgh Fringe show of the same name in 2019.
