Cinderella Ate My Daughter

Dispatches From the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture

Finally, a book published about the the whole princess obsession in our culture! I just landed a copy of Peggy Orenstein’s New York Times Bestselling book, Cinderella Ate My Daughter: Dispatches From the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture, and I have already devoured quite a bit of it. Orenstein’s well-known presence as a journalist helps make this book such an important resource for both parents as well as media analysts; I found myself finding so many talking points while reading the book that I wished that I was back on my college debate team, taking notes and making evidence cards for a tournament. It is really that good.
