Nina's mother always told her that love there's no such thing as unconditional love. Now Nina will do anything for the boy she loves, to prove she's worthy of him. But when he breaks up with her, Nina is lost. What is she, if not a girlfriend? Broken-hearted, Nina tries to figure out what the conditions of love are, and what she's really made of.

A powerful and unflinching novel that explores what young women really think and feel about relationships, What Girls Are Made Of is for anyone who has ever had to pick up the pieces of their heart and rebuild it.

Review quote

"Elegant prose and interwoven magical-realist stories... It features thoughtful observations about female sexuality and the nature of love" * Irish Times * "Unflinchingly candid, unapologetically girl, and devastatingly vital" * Kirkus * "Smart, true, and devastating, this is brutally, necessarily forthcoming about teen courtship" * Booklist * "A must read for women of all ages" * PopSugar * "[A] visceral portrait of girls as bodily creatures" * Publishers Weekly *
