I found most interesting the story by Livia Llewellyn, “It Feels Better Biting Down.” The story is about twin sisters that look different than the average person and the sisters discover they can bite off parts of their body and reattach or rearrange them in any way they want and end morphing themselves together to become the “perfect being.” The story perfectly conveyed how women struggle with self-love and body acceptance and constantly feel the need to change something about themselves.
A few of these stories also depict the roles of women as mothers and also change the perspective of motherhood by showing the possible consequences of having children as illustrated in the story, “Martyrdom” by Joyce Carol Oates.
Another unique part of the book that I really enjoyed was the illustrations at the beginning of the stories and toward the end of the novel. They really made the stories come to life.
