FROCK OFF: LIVING UNDISGUISED
A Memoir by Jo Dibblee
* * *
A Portrait of Innocence Interrupted and the 35-Year Journey that Followed
With parents tormented by secrets, guilt and shame, Jo Dibblee quickly learned to protect herself. Faced with her parents’ alcoholism, drug abuse and depression—along with the sexual assault and stalking of an “upstanding” foster parent—Jo developed a coping strategy she now calls "frocking.”
With humor and hope, in her book Frock Off, Jo shares the harrowing roller coaster of her life story, and gives the lowdown on frocking—how she learned it and used it to survive, how it held her back, and what she had to do to, once and for all...Frock Off.
Despite harsh truths, brushes with death and agonizing betrayals, Jo’s heart shines through the pages, offering promise, wisdom and inspiration to any reader who has learned to hide and longs to be free.
Frock Off is not only memoir; it is also written in memory of a little girl who was murdered by the same person that assaulted Jo. Susan Duff lost her life at the hands of a sexual predator when she was only twelve years old. "In the times of my life when I was frocking up, Susan was my guiding angel. I carry her picture with me, always."
For the over thirty-five years, Jo lived disguised out of fear and necessity. "Frocks protected me, but they also ruled my life."
At times, donning a frock out of fear, to keep a secret, or because of shame may seem the only way—but frocks are like lies. They start to pile up and soon they take on a life of their own.
Praise for Frock Off and Jo Dibblee
"Jo Dibblee has written a powerful and sometimes shocking autobiography which, at the same time, is compelling and inspirational." —James Miller, Managing Editor, Penticton Herald (daily).
"If you want to learn to free your true self and live life to its fullest potential, this book is for you. It is both tragic and triumphant. Frock Off will break your heart and then put it back together again. An inspiring must read for truth seekers and those ready to quit letting their past define them." —Hyrum Smith, Co-founder of Franklin Covey
"A lot of books inspire us, but few will deeply move you like Jo Dibblee's tenacious voice for internal freedom. You'll cry, get angry and cheer our heroine on, only to discover it was YOU, the reader, who needed to cry, get angry and cheer YOURSELF on. These words of courageous expression will have you shouting FROCK OFF, often! I highly recommend." —Shawne Duperon, Six-Time Emmy Winner, Media Coach & Trainer, Communications Keynote Speaker.
"Honest, raw and uplifting, Jo Dibblee faces with courage what so many long to do, paving the way for each of us to examine the 'frocks' we don to protect, hide, and ultimately reveal who we really are. She delivers what she promises..." —Suze Casey, MEd, Author
