The Chicktionary - Words Every Woman Should Know

You're all over the definitions of "low lights," "ruching," and a "tankini." But can you spot a "Mrs. Potato Head" when you see one?

That's where Anna Lefler's The Chicktionary comes in. With the help of Anna Lefler and her collection of 450+ must-know words and phrases, you'll be in the know when faced with terms like Aberzombie, Bandeau, George Glass, and Puma.

So whether you are dealing with a Residual Girlfriend, diagnose yourself with a bad case of Basset Knees, or need to go on a Briet, you'll be prepared for all that comes your way. At the very least, this book will serve as a delightful reminder that everyone has a skeleton in her closet--right next to her fat pants.

If you’re not into writing your own 50 Shades of Grey, and possibly penning a Chick-Lit novel instead, you may find this little ‘chick’ pink guide to the way some women speak [my mission in 2014 is to start learning a new language!] – some are said to have peed themselves laughing.

Take a loo break before you start learning your language …
