“Hear the dark liquor of her laughter rippling behind her sentences” in this magnetic memoir as it explores a journalist’s obsession with pop culture and the difficulty of navigating relationships as a Black woman through fanfiction, feminism, and Southern mores (Saeed Jones). Pop culture is the Pandora’s Box of our lives. Racism, wealth, poverty, beauty, inclusion, exclusion, and hope -- all of these intractable and unavoidable features course through the media we consume. Examining pop culture’s impact on her life, Nichole Perkins takes readers on a rollicking trip through the last twenty years of music, media and the internet from the perspective of one southern Black woman. She explores her experience with mental illness and how the TV series Frasier served as a crutch, how her role as mistress led her to certain internet message boards that prepared her for current day social media, and what it means to figure out desire and sexuality and Prince in a world where marriage is the only acceptable goal for women. Combining her sharp wit, stellar pop culture sensibility, and trademark spirited storytelling, Nichole boldly tackles the damage done to women, especially Black women, by society’s failure to confront the myths and misogyny at its heart, and her efforts to stop the various cycles that limit confidence within herself. By using her own life and loves as a unique vantage point, Nichole humorously and powerfully illuminates how to take the best pop culture has to offer and discard the harmful bits, offering a mirror into our own lives.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I remember being fascinated with sex and romance from a young age, and I was constantly warned by my teachers and parents that if I showed too much interest in those things, boys would think I was easy, and girls would call me names. #2 I was eventually caught kissing one of the boys, and my mother made me stop. Boys were quiet when you kissed them. They did not tease you for being skinny or bucktoothed or smart. They let you lead when you kissed them. #3 I was a scrawny child who always carried books around. I was always overlooked for the girls who already wore training bras, had professionally styled straight hair, and who boasted of boyfriends at other schools. #4 I was not unaffected by my classmates’ becoming pregnant young, even as I remained fascinated by sex and love. I was scared. Teenage pregnancy was a family curse, and every time I looked in the mirror, I worried that it would happen because of an accident.

Skyy is done with Storm and ready to focus on school and move on to bigger and better things. She can't see how she could ever forgive him after having a miscarriage with his baby and then finding out he has a baby on the way right after. As much as she tries to stay away from him it's impossible since they live in a small town and both run in the same circles. Skyy remembers all the good times they had together and wonder if breaking up with him was the right decision. She's now second guessing herself and her decision. The handsome and most hated Storm is still a hot commodity in the streets with women. After falling out and breaking up with Skyy he decides to put his head even deeper into the game and consume his free time with random women. Even though he tries to get over Skyy he keeps running into her, and realizes none of the many chicks he's sleeping with can hold a light to her. Now he has to work on getting back into her good graces or he may just lose her forever. Chi is Skyy's best friend and while Skyy is the quiet one she is anything but. She has no problem speaking her mind, and that can be a good or bad thing. Chi starts to date Chinx whom is Storm's best friend and they hit it off like crazy, but nothing is ever perfect. Especially when you're messing with a popular man that has women falling at his feet. Chinx is the man that vowed to never settle down with just one woman. He loved playing the field, getting money and living the single life. Chi comes into his world and changes all of that in the blink of an eye. Now he has to figure out how to change from being a single man to being in a relationship and spending time with just one woman. Skyy and Storm have had their ups and downs, but the baby situation trumps all. Will she be able to forgive him or will she keep it moving? Chi and Chinx continue to get serious, but everything can't be perfect, can it? Will they be able to get past whatever trials and tribulations they come across or will the relationship end before it ever really started?
