Diary of a Single Mormon Female: a Memoir



Diary of a Single Mormon Female: a wry, moving memoir about coping sans Mr. Right.

As an awkward, home-schooled Mormon teenager, she just wanted a boy to kiss her. Now a grown woman, she wants—well, basically the same thing. But dating—across two continents—has been a complete bust. Is there truly someone out there for her?

This is the candid and very funny story about being single in a church focused on marriage and family. Actual pages from her diaries detail her encounters with scripture juggling, a virtual albino Chinese teenager, chastity lines, the virgin lips club, Brazilians (not that kind), a pink flamingo date messenger, an open-minded parrot, a Swiss lumberjack, Icelandic Mormons, a marriage flowchart and dozens of awkward conversations.

Will she ever find the man of her dreams? And will she succeed in reconciling her beliefs with her reality? Some days it feels like it would take nothing less than a fairy godmother and a magic wand.

Here's what Amazon reviewers are saying:

A deeply affecting, heartfelt memoir told with wry humor, good grace, and remarkable candor. Highly recommended.

Informative, wistful, sad, downright weird and scattered in places; but always unputdownably funny.

The realities of being single in a church that emphasizes the importance of family is one that is difficult to grapple with and Aleesa manages to do this with honesty and humour.

Standout comedy.

I was laughing on nearly every page.

So real, so funny, and SO TRUE! I should also mention dangerously addictive. Yes, I'll admit to temporarily neglecting my kids to read it!

Available now for Kindle and Kobo.

Check out the book and an author Q&A on Youtube.
