Joelle Samuells has always been what you might call a "good girl." She's cute too.
So why is it that all of the men she dates chew her up and spit her out? If men supposedly like good, pretty girls, why is she single at 27 years old.
Life is really kicking her butt--she's facing an eviction from her New York City apartment and the guy she only THOUGHT was her boyfriend has just kicked her to the curb.
On the verge of giving up, Joelle is presented with a unique, revolutionary solution that will make her write off men and focus more on her personal goals. She jumps at the opportunity. When she tries this new solution, men suddenly lose their appeal--Joelle completely pushes them to the side.
Soon enough, men all over New York City, the country and the world over will learn what it feels like to completely lose their hold and power over desperate, single women. My, how the tables have turned.
But is there a downside to this new state of affairs? Is it normal for a young, single woman to have absolutely no interest in men? What about the need to procreate and raise families to keep the human race going strong?
In Jayelle Hughes' novel, the invention of a revolutionary formula frees women from their obsession over men... Men Don't Matter is one of those books that will garner lots of discussion. The concept behind the book is cleverly thought out and executed well. It really makes you think about how life would be if society didn't teach women to depend on men so much.
