11 Books About Outsiders, Weirdos, and Underdogs: List List #300

This week’s List List is sponsored by Perfect is Boring, from TarcherPerigee.

In Perfect Is Boring, Tyra Banks and her mother, Carolyn, get raw, real, and cray-in-a-good-way as they share what they’ve learned on Tyra’s journey from insecure preteen to supermodel and entrepreneurial powerhouse. Whether they’re writing about watching Tyra’s most imperfect moment go viral (Does “Be Quiet Tiffany!” ring any bells?), no-holds-barred sex talks, or how they’ve overcome fashion industry discrimination and media fat-shaming, they never lose their we-got-your-back-spirit. Full of smart and wise lessons for mothers, daughters, fathers, and sons, Perfect Is Boring is a must-read for anyone who needs a kick in the booty, or a good reason to laugh-out-loud.
