Lena discusses her times in therapy, and how she bonded with the therapists. Lena discusses her top 10 health concerns that has to do with mental disorders. Lena discusses so much, and does not shy away from sharing her opinions on her life. People were and are mad about stuff she shared, but I think she has a right to say it. As I said, I do not see her as a pedophile or anything negative.
Lena discusses her regrets. And discusses a guide to run away from home for 9 year old girls, and 27 year old woman. Go buy this book!!!

Sit back with a snack or a cup of coffee and enjoy.
I want to tell you about parts of the book that made headlines after the release. In one headline, critics have accused Lena of sexually assaulting her sister. In the book Lena wrote opening up her one year old sister’s vagina when she was seven, asking her mom see that her sister put pebbles in there. Another section of the book that made headlines is when Lena said a guy named Barry raped her, a claim that Barry denies, and is suing Lena about it. After reading about both of these events in the book, I will now give you my opinions. I don’t see Lena Dunham as a pedophile for opening her sisters vagina, if she had not done that then asked her mom to come over to see it her sister may have been in pain later from the pebbles.
As for the Barry Rape Claim, I see it being true but I was not there. Lena discusses everything about her life in five sections, from love to sex to work and more. More stuff like virginity, dieting, bed sharing, girls & jerks, sex scenes, things she has learned from her parents, etc… In fact, all of those things I have listed are chapters in the book. This book is funny, witty, and exactly what it claims to be. I am not making excuses for Lena in nothing I am saying with my views, if I honestly thought Lena was a pedophile I would say it. I am not shy when I can express my views, as long as there’s prove. If you’re a Lena Dunham Fan, this book is for you. Not That Kind of Girl is published by Random House. Year of Published: 2014
