About the Book
Do you know how it feels to be so lost and alone that ANYONE is better than no one? Ever fall for someone you KNEW you shouldn't, just to be with SOMEONE? Rachel sought what most women did-to be successful, married and in love, have healthy kids. It was hard enough attracting a man when she wasn't heroin thin or chic like most Hollywood women, or sparkly, but not too bright, as her mom insisted females should be. But in the 1990s, finding a man wanting an equal partner, a woman beside him instead of behind him, seemed the impossible dream. Then along came Lee... DISCONNECTED is an addiction, feminist dating MEMOIR, about the Coming of Age OF women, for women. 1991-1992 Los Angeles, during the L.A. Riots, DISCONNECTED exposes the antiquated roles women were expected to maintain in the recent past, up close, and very personal. It reveals the impossible standards of feminism imposed on women, by women- being poised, confident, cover-girl worthy, all while climbing the corporate ladder, and raising a family. DISCONNECTED mirrors the challenges most women still face today.
