By DC Stanfa

DC Stanfa’s ultimate goal in life is to outlive her acne, survive the dateless experience of high school, and get the hell out of Toledo. She has succeeded at all three. Follow this true, humorous journey of a rebellious Catholic schoolgirl in the 1970s, and her escape from the repressed notions of the Church and other adolescent constraints—such as living in the body of Peter Pan and in the shadow of a popular sister.
While looking for fun and love, she also finds trouble in Dallas in the 1980s, gets her fifteen minutes of fame by posing as VP of Talent for GQ magazine on a beach trip, and ends up on a notorious talk show.
To DC, falling down means always looking up and laughing in the face of whatever threw you to the ground—often looking in the mirror—and to get back up on that table and dance! She learns that life’s little betrayals are necessary to really growing up—as is going home again. And in the end, humor, hope, and a sense of belonging prevail.
