OBOS was born in 1971, just as I entered womanhood and turned 14. It became my go-to resource for any questions I couldn’t ask out loud. I had no idea it was as revolutionary a book as it was at the time. I’m not sure where I would have turned to get the straight talk and detailed answers it provided!
