While the topic was interesting, and I enjoyed the scope of it, I found the writer far too judgemental and elitist. In fact I had a hard time finishing the book due to the writers voice. She thinks too much of herself and too little of her topic, from the start of each section you can tell that she has already made a judgement, and only thinks to question it in the last paragraph of each section. While I agreed with her on her views of many sections, she should have approached each topic fairly and with an open mind to explore all the aspects. Instead she offers close minded interpretations on a variety of interesting rites and rituals. It's too bad these topics didn't recieve the respect and thouroughness that they deserved.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Vida's book was an in-depth look at our culture and the rites of passage for young women.The most interesting part of the book was Vida's undercover role during sorority rush at UCLA...she proves a point about these groups in a real and fair way. She makes the reader think twice about stereotypes and misconceptions surrounding young women who partake in such rites of passage.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
