A fond, funny Southern-fried memoir about growing up a proper young lady...or not.
How does a North Carolina native go from being a tomboy with catfish guts on her overalls to becoming the next Scarlett O'Hara? Turns out, it's not so easy. Too smart, too tall, too fat, too different...Anna Fields was a dud at debbing.
From tea parties to teased hair to where to hide mini bottles of liquor inside poufy crinoline ballgowns, Anna reveals all-in a hilarious, behindthe-scenes glimpse into Deb Culture, where for a Southern belle, "the proof is in the pouf."
Unless, of course, she rebels...
