Summary

Twenty-one-year-old Rebecca is struggling. She's been kicked off the gymnastics team, loses her scholarship and has to move back home with her parents. Desperate to eke out a living that will free her from the confines of a life with an alcoholic mother, Becca takes a job as an exotic dancer. Ashamed of what people will call her, she keeps the job a secret from everyone except her best friend, Ally. Forced to live a double life, the pressure becomes too much, and Becca spirals further into a fog of alcohol and drug abuse. While dancing empowers her as she learns to embrace her sexuality, her fragile world is pulled apart when a stranger calls her a whore. She's sick of the pussy grabbing and  annoyed with men telling her to smile more.  
Slowly, Becca starts to realize misogyny has followed her throughout her entire life—it’s not just part of her job. Now, she's just tired of being a woman. As Becca searches for her voice in a world that would prefer she stay silent, what finally pulls her through is something she’d never thought to rely on before.
