"You used to be much more muchier. You've lost your much'ness" - Mad Hatter to Alice
A quirky and unique illustrated poem about Heather (nicknamed Hat)... who loses touch with her true self... her 'much'ness'... her 'HAT'ness'... in her hasty attempt to *fit-in* and be *normal*.
It's a story about what it feels like to people-please, live a lie and wear a mask... and the journey back towards reclaiming genuine authenticity - and having the courage to be *seen* for who we truly are.
- Full-colour, 80-page, illustrated poem
- The book was written with adults and teens in mind (it wasn't originally intended as a "children's book" since there are some sensitive topics that younger kids may not understand... ie: marriage problems, eating disorders, self-abuse, etc).
- Written & illustrated by Heather Costaras
"Can you remember who you were... before the world told you who you *should* be?" - Danielle LaPorte
