3 New Books About Daring to Be Different
We live in a world of conformity; humor is a variation on the same accepted memes, accepted body types are few, and sometimes it’s difficult to retain friends and stay popular if you don’t all believe the same thing. Sometimes it’s even dangerous to be different and stand out from the mass. It’s the outsiders, though, who have a tendency to see what’s really going on, to persevere and to succeed, by, well, being different. The three new books in this week’s book club are all about the pleasures of being and accepting yourself. They show us why it’s not just okay to be weird but even awesome.
