Weird But Normal - Mia Mercado
This product is currently sold out.
Birth control. Body hair removal cream. Boobs. It’s all weird, but also pretty normal.
Navigating racial identity, gender roles, workplace dynamics, and beauty standards, Mia Mercado’s hilarious essay collection explores the contradictions of being a millennial woman, which usually means being kind of a weirdo.
With sharp humor and wit, Mia shares the awkward, uncomfortable, surprisingly ordinary parts of life, and shows us why it’s strange to feel fine and fine to feel strange.
“Whether she’s tackling universal topics like the joy of shopping at Target or zeroing in on discussing racial identity, each one of her essays is insightful, funny, and a joy to read.”
