"These essays establish Medine as not just a fashion wunderkind, but a clever and engaging storyteller who's not afraid to laugh at herself." --Publisher's Weekly
"...the utterly likable Medine comes across vividly and sincerely in writing what she loves." --Booklist
"In a strong, consistent narrative voice, Medine displays wit, unabashed openness and a knack for weaving seemingly superficial, materialistic details into essays that are rich with sly wisdom and the colorful personalities of family members and friends. Humorous, insightful and sometimes-sparkling essays that will appeal to readers interested in the pure fun of fashion." --Kirkus Reviews
"Not only do I agree with how Leandra dresses, but I also agree with everything she says in these brilliant stories. She's a terrific writer." --Joan Rivers
"Leandra is a sick, twisted fashion addict and guess what? There is no rehab. As this book shows, she is doomed to be stylish and groovy and hilarious for the rest of her life." --Simon Doonan, Barneys New York ambassador and author of The Asylum
"Leandra wears her wit as well as she wears her denim bib overalls. But at being repellent, she is a colossal failure." --Laura Brown, Executive Editor, Harper's BAZAAR
"Through Leandra's growing pains and dating disasters, MAN REPELLER reminds you that your outfit always plays the best supporting role in your life." --Kelly Oxford, New York Times bestselling author of Everything is Perfect When You're a Liar
"A classic love story of a girl and her clothes, Leandra Medine's MAN REPELLER is as funny, smart, and adorable as she is." --Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author

Her sometimes wacky "I Love Lucy" style anecdotes that take her from her first crush in elementary school to joining the adult job market are at once endearing and annoying in a Carrie Bradshaw kind of way. Medine's clear devotion to fashion are what kept me reading long after I decided that I couldn't relate to her at all.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
