Little Secrets argues for female safety and desire, and

secrets and lies teens tell themselves... Women of all ages
can relate and benefit from this book-I can't recommend it

her insight, and her remarkable ability to draw out the
truth...Dirty Little Secrets busts the myths, breaks down
walls, and takes us where we need to go to understand the
private lives of so many young women today."
