"An important, fascinating read for redheads-and others-everywhere."
Life as a redhead is different. Throughout the ages, redheads have been celebrated and vilified, portrayed as saints, goddesses, clowns, brutes, and prostitutes. No matter the stereotype, one thing is certain: Having red hair gets you noticed! For the owner of those flame-colored tresses, this attribute is both a blessing and a curse. One longs for a means of self-expression and solidarity with the similarly adorned. My Life as a Redhead is a guided journal in which to record thoughts, feelings, special events, and important decisions particular to the redheaded experience. Every page offers a new, creative, and thought-provoking exercise or activity to complete. With full-color artwork and original illustrations throughout, it's the perfect gift and essential companion for every redhead.
