Cheeky: A Head-to-Toe Memoir

This cel­e­bra­to­ry, hon­est, and hilar­i­ous mem­oir is Elovic’s jour­ney toward a bet­ter rela­tion­ship with her body: I think six was my peak self-love year,” she writes, and I’ve been on a mis­sion to reclaim at least some of that con­fi­dence, feisti­ness, and joy.”

In each chap­ter, Elovic reframes her rela­tion­ship to a spe­cif­ic part of her body through her own expe­ri­ences and those of a close group of friends. We see how and when cer­tain inse­cu­ri­ties man­i­fest­ed, and the joy that comes from dar­ing to take up space and flaunt­ing the char­ac­ter­is­tics women are expect­ed to hide.

Cheeky unapolo­get­i­cal­ly lays out the unde­ni­able human­i­ty of wom­en’s bod­ies, the pow­er that female friend­ship can inspire, and how body con­fi­dence goes hand-in-hand with self-advo­ca­cy in rela­tion­ships, the work­place, and beyond.
