The Morning After is about GIRL. Modern Girl. As in GRRRRRRL!
Howes describes the modern girl's recovery from falling into the gorge of depression and self hate that many adolescents of the American culture experience. She describes the fall, the crash at the bottom and the climb out. While the journey is sometimes raw, sometimes painful to read about, the trip is worth the emotional bumps and potholes because it is the most real description of modern girl's life that is in print today.
