"Required reading for parents" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), now with a new introduction by the author

Upon its hardcover publication, The Lolita Effect started a media sensation. Now, after the book has been featured on Fox, in People magazine, on Salon.com, and in print and online review venues all over the country, Overlook is pleased to be publishing it in paperback. Brand name thong underwear for ten-year-olds; oversexed and underdressed celebrities gone wild; dolls with companion "sexy" clothing lines for preteen girls: how do we raise sexually healthy young women in this kind of environment? The Lolita Effect offers parents, teachers, counselors, and other concerned adults effective and progressive strategies for resisting the violations and repressions that put girls at risk.
