At the very least, this book will serve as a delightful reminder that everyone has a skeleton in her closet--right next to her fat pants.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I have to tell you that Anna Lefler's CHICKtionary is pure genius. I always knew she was funny but the definitions you will find in this must-read guide to the way women speak are sure to make you laugh until you pee."
--Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, comedian and author of Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay: And Other Things I Had to Learn as a New Mom

"Before reading Anna Lefler's book, I had no idea that the word "herpes-ish" even existed. Now I can't stop using it. This book is guaranteed to be passed around to all your friends. It's totally herpes-ish. But in a good way."
--Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess and author of the forthcoming Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir from Amy Einhorn Books

"Anna Lefler is an American original. She isn't merely blazingly smart and achingly funny. She's also so utterly sympatico with what women think and how women talk that years from now sociologists will be consulting CHICKtionary as the only true and tested source on the challenging but wholly worthy subject. The English language has a true friend in Anna. So, of course, do women."
--Beth Kephart, National Book Award Finalist and author of thirteen books, both fiction and non-fiction including, most recently, YOU ARE MY ONLY.
