This Just In… Even Tough Girls Wear Tutus by Deborah Jiang Stein

Even Tough Girls Wear Tutus: Inside the World of a Woman Born in Prison is the story of a woman whose gift for finding purpose in life drives her to help others change their lives even as she struggles to accept and overcome her own past, born heroin addicted to a mother in prison. Her story proves we’re more than the sum of our parts, and there’s always a chance for redemption. Sometimes, it takes a dive over the edge to find your center. Even Tough Girls Wear Tutus is about the courage and curiosity to create an authentic life with purpose and resilience, and what it takes to hold onto this courage.

Today author Deborah Jiang Stein tours women’s prisons to plant seeds of possibility and hope for others, little by little, fulfilling her mission to change attitudes of secrecy and shame.

“A harrowing, heartfelt glittering diamond of a memoir that shows being born in prison does not have to imprison the spirit. Gloriously alive and important.” -- Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You.
