Cinderella Ate My Daughter: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture - Peggy Orenstein My spouse needs to read this because most of it will be new to him. Me, I know quite a bit about where Orenstein lives, and since the material is mostly not new to me, I am stuck wishing the material had more nuance, more sense of intersectionality, and anything beyond a locked-in sense of upper middle class white expectations. Within that relatively narrow space, Orenstein's book is compelling, but there's a big world around and past it.
