Recommended for: Everyone
Read in June, 2008

Everyone, everywhere should read this book and take it as a call to arms about how backwards and wrong our culture is. As a high school teacher I see how victimized girls are by this image-based world we live in on several levels every single day.
This book is well-researched and a page turner. It's heart-breaking but also full of hope. You come away from it enraged but, at the same time, energized to do something-anything to try and help.
