Abstract:

A conversation between friends Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark about what they've learned from their biggest mistakes, their most triumphant successes, their favorite therapists, and their mutual obsession with true crime. From growing up as latchkey kids to their formative years working at the Gap and Hot Topic to their struggles with substances and mental health, Karen and Georgia share some of the most significant moments in their lives. Together they inspect their own hard-earned wisdom with brutal and hilarious candor. In a culture that mythologizes killers, celebrates 'personality-corrupting toxic masculinity bullshit,' and holds victims responsible for the violence committed against them, Karen and Georgia preach self-advocacy, self-love, and freedom from responsibility for other people's choices. Guided by their own experiences and revelations with a little help from the Riot Grrrl movement, Ann Rule, and 'billions of hours of therapy,' Karen and Georgia are here to encourage you to put your own needs first and become unfuckwithable. Part dual memoir, part life manual, this is an account of two lives that collided over the dark stuff. Inspired by the empowering and offbeat battle cries made famous on their hit podcast, Karen and Georgia recount the formative moments of their lives that taught them everything they know, and everything they don't, about life, friendship, and various pancake situations.
