Synopsis

Fighting midlife inertia, Sherry Stanfa-Stanley stares down a year of fear through The 52/52 Project: a year of weekly new experiences designed to push her far outside her comfort zone. Her exploits range from visiting a nude beach with her seventy-five-year-old mother in tow to going on a raid with a vice squad and SWAT team to crashing a wedding (where she accidentally catches the bouquet). While finding her courage in the most unlikely of circumstances, Sherry ultimately finds herself.


For midlifers, fatigued parents, and anyone who may be discontent with their life and looking to shake things up, try new things, or just escape, Finding My Badass Self is proof it's never too late to reinvent yourself―and that the best bucket list of all may be an unbucket list.

Above average

The tone is consistently lighthearted and comedic, and there’s no shortage of opportunities to giggle. But many of the author’s self-directed dares are a bit predictable and less than terrifying...A delightfully breezy read about experimentation, often humorous and companionable.
