The Incendiary Girls by Kodi Scheer
Little A, 2014
192 pages, 3 stars

About the Book: “Incendiary Girls” explores our baser instincts with vivid imagination and humor. In these stories, our bodies become strange and unfamiliar terrain, a medium for transformation. In ?Fundamental Laws of Nature, ? a doctor considers her legacy, both good and bad, when she discovers that her mother has been reincarnated as a thoroughbred mare. In the title story, a mischievous angel chronicles the remarkable life of a girl just beyond death’s reach. —

This book of short stories was very different and entertaining, but a lot of the same literary themes were used in the stories. I understand coherency of a short story collection, but not to the point that it gets tiresome. I think of all of the stories I liked the one about the girl and her camel boyfriend best (along with the angel of death story), which is why it was the main inspiration for this Fashion Friday!

Fashion Friday: My dear little human, squeeze into these camel colored riding pants. They make you nostalgic for the boyfriend who spit and shit on your floors. Pull these black leather boots on to complete the I-just-jumped-off-a-horse look because you did. You’re convinced that your dead mother has been reincarnated as a mare and you will tame her if it’s the last thing you do.

Button this hot pink shirt up all the way, perhaps it will hide your distress over the lump you recently found. This animal print scarf is a bougie accent that pulls together your look, like the animal themes in the collection.

Your white coat is for when you’re saving lives as one kind of doctor or another. And this cuff with skulls is for when you’re shadowing a young girl throughout her life just waiting to snatch the breath from her.
