I was a gawky girl growing up. Hitting 5’6″ in 4th grade, still with a mouth full of baby teeth made for an extra long awkward phase. Now, at 6-feet-tall, I’ve embraced my stature. But I’m glad I lived through my long journey to the top (pun intended) because it made me never take myself too seriously. Not to mention, I developed a very thick skin. While some may view the word “gawky” in a negative light, I see it as a compliment. Gawky ladies are unique. They march to their own drummer. Sure, they may trip over their own giant feet while marching to said drummer, but they do it with flair! Click through to see some of my all time favorite gawky lady role models.

A few days ago, author Maureen Johnson tweeted, “I do wish I had a dime for every email I get that says, ‘Please put a non-girly cover on your book so I can read it. – signed, A Guy,’” and the Coverflip challenge was born. Johnson asked her followers to “take a well-known book, then to imagine the author of that book was of the opposite gender, or was genderqueer, and imagine what that cover might look like.” Some of the resulting cover makeovers are funny (like the above reimagining of Shutter Island as a beachy “novel of self-discovery”), some are pretty ridiculous, but they all say a hell of a lot about how books are very clearly gendered, and how publishers market male and female authors in drastically different ways.
