Praise

Praise

"An urgent dispatch from a group of girls who will not--and must not--be ignored. Carroll allows her subjects to tell their own, unfiltered stories, and they do: joyfully, painfully, and always powerfully."--Peggy Orenstein, author of School Girls: Young Women, Self-Esteem, and the Confidence Gap

"A stunning achievement."--Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
