WHAT MAKES US GIRLS
“Faced with the very real suffering of today’s women and girls, it seems like society only reacts by promising women that they will inherit the earth, and also that nothing is their fault. Brittany’s book is a wonderful dose of tough love, which reminds us all that a sex that cannot take responsibility for anything, cannot achieve anything. This book feels like a summary of every time Brittany and I have laughed over coffee, or when she has held me while I cried and put my broken heart back together. I am so thrilled that so many other girls will have that experience. If I ever have a daughter, this book will be on her nightstand.” —LAUREN SOUTHERN
We cannot give what we do not have. So if we do not love ourselves, or even if we are too obsessed with ourselves, how then can we love others?
What Makes Us Girls examines the topic of self-worth through a modern cultural lens. Using examples from the author’s life experience and the life experiences of a variety of other girls, What Makes Us Girls analyzes seven of the most common issues that result in a destructive sense of self-worth: comparison, rejection, bullying, inauthenticity, purposelessness, betrayal and guilt. Every girl in the world, no matter our age or the country we are from, will have to face a battle for self-worth. Some of us will win and some of us will lose. But those of us who win will do so for two reasons: because we are able to see the battle for what it is, and even more importantly, because we have the right weapons to fight it.
What Makes Us Girls is available on Amazon in every country. It’s also available on demand via 40,000 virtual and physical bookstores. Formats include hardcover, paperback and eBook. An audiobook is in the works and will be completed very soon.

Winner of a Kirkus Star and a Reader’s Favorite award, Hatred Day is a science-fiction and fantasy novel co-authored by Brittany Pettibone and her twin sister, Nicole, under the pen name, T.S. Pettibone.
In the year 2052, it’s not love but hate that unites the world. Humanity is unified against the Inborns, an extraterrestrial species with godlike intelligence and abilities whose arrival on earth caused an environmental and biological crisis.
Enslaved and despised even by her own Inbornkind, 18-year-old Snofrid reawakens to the world after having her memories stolen and is certain of only one thing: she will do anything to ensure her freedom. But her resolution is soon tested when the son of a high-ranking human official is murdered and her home city becomes the center of the interspecies war, one that might see the Inborns purged. Desperate to find a way out of the city for herself and her family, Snofrid risks making a deal with the manipulative Inborn Commander, Hadrian, and his brutal cadre of soldiers. Her task is simple: take part in a historic hunt that will bring wealth and fame to all who survive. Unfortunately, Snofrid’s role is one in which survival is rarely seen—the bait.
