I mainly was drawn to this book because it was written about girls at my high school. They followed a group of girl that i knew tangentially, so I knew who they were profiling throughout, which made for a voyeuristic intrigue. With that disclaimer I did find many of their observations and interpretations interesting. The development of girls into women can be very perilous in ways that are unique to this sex. I would recommend it for anyone with female children, or who has an interest in female psychology/sociology. ( )
