Backcover: “That’s when all the trouble started. First of all, my long blond hair kept getting darker and darker until it finally turned brown. I know it doesn’t sound that terrible, but one of Mom’s magazines said if you have “dishwater brown” hair, you should take that “boring” hair and make it more exciting by dyeing it red or platinum blond.
Then next to the article there were these pictures of three different ladies with brown, red and blond hair. The redhead and the blond lady were smiling like those people on game shows who trips to Hawaii, but the lady with the brown hair looked like she was about to cry.
So now I’m stuck with hair that makes you cry. But that’s just part of what’s happened to me since second grade. Believe me, it gets a hundred times worse.”
