In the Midwest of the 1980s, being a Jewish girl meant trying to resolve your accidental love of ham with your desire to follow the rules and be a good kid. I Look Better in Binary tells the tales of writer Becky Pourchot’s adventures through puberty with poignancy and side-splitting humor. In a series of engaging stories, a picture unfolds of a thoughtful, creative, funny, and slightly neurotic girl who’s learning her way through the world one embarrassing experience at a time. It’s the unique, but also familiar story of growing up, facing fears, and, in the process discovering who we really are.

About the Author
Becky Meyer Pourchot was a writer before she knew she was a writer. She was the kid who could tell scary stories at a Halloween party, giving everyone goose bumps, then the next day proudly make her family laugh at the dinner table. In her debut book, I Look Better In Binary, Becky draws on her childhood experiences as a Jewish kid growing up in the Midwest to create a collection of short stories that are, at once, hilarious and touching. Becky credits her family, friends, and one special teacher for the encouragement she needed to become the writer she is today.
