“Vicky DeCoster has a quirky, irreverent style in her humor books that is reminiscent of Joan Rivers and a life view that echoes Bombeck.”
—Dannye Williamsen, Owner, Breakthrough Bookstore
We’ve all had one, whether we like it or not. No, it’s not a bad date, a pimple that will not go away, or an annoying mother-in-law. It’s a childhood. Who hasn’t hung helplessly from the chin-up bar in grade school during the annual Presidential Fitness Test or magically transformed into a forensic pathologist during a frog dissection in seventh grade biology class or, worse yet, endured an uncomfortable birds and bees lesson from their parents?
In her third book in the Wacky Womanhood series, Vicky DeCoster shares her latest compilation of hilarious essays that look back to a simpler time when trying new things was a way of life; bullies ruled like kings; and parents reveled in torturing tiny versions of themselves. As DeCoster recalls her side-splitting childhood, she also shares inspirational life lessons that encourage others to look at their own youth in a completely different way.
From Diapers to Dorkville offers a refreshingly wicked glimpse into one girl’s true adventures as she attempts to gracefully sashay her way into the wacky world of womanhood.
“When I opened From Diapers to Dorkville, I expected a good laugh― but I got a whole lot more than I bargained for. In this book, Vicky handles the trials and tribulations of growing up in a wholesome Midwest family with gut-clenching humor, but seasons each experience with a lesson learned. Some were hysterical, some sad, but all were beautifully touching. Vicky’s latest release goes way beyond a good laugh. It’s a good solid read that I’ll keep on my nightstand for those nights when I want to feel just a little closer to humanity.”
—Lynda Fitzgerald, author of “If Truth Be Told,” “Of Words & Music”, and “LIVE Ringer”
