Jersey Girls, with a brashy mix of vintage and modern photography and shout-outs to genuine Jersey Girl style (“The bigger the hair, the closer to God”) is the ultimate pop culture coffee table book that rescues the shore from the wanna-be’s and train wrecks (see MTV’s “Jersey Shore”) and restores statewide diva dignity, from the beaches of Atlantic City to the boundaries of the GW Bridge.

"Jersey Girls" is a fun & beautiful homage to the girls... and boys of our state

The book embraces a Jersey Girl’s individuality and energy – from style at the shoreline to Jersey Girl “Tawk,” with exclusive interviews with famous girls speaking out on what it really means to hail from the Garden State.  About one-third of the books covers our shore area with gorgeous and fun photos and interviews.

Everyone from Dionne Warwick and Olympia Dukakis to Bebe Neuwirth and Bobbi Brown get in on the action – celebrating – the true spirit of born and bred Jersey Girls.

Even self-proclaimed Jersey Girl, designer Jonathan Adler, Fort Lee guy and celebrity photographer Timothy White and fancy-pants jewelry designer Gerard Yosca (Ocean Grove), weigh-in on separating the fabulous from the fiction.

Authors Marie Moss (Turnpike Exit 11) and Barri Leiner Grant (Parkway Exit 109) are born, bred, and proud Jersey Girls. They are also fashion, design, and lifestyle experts who have been featured on air and in publications such as the New York Times, Country Living, Elle and O Magazine.
