it was ok
Read in October, 2008

Anti-consumerist propaganda. The book was informational, and seemed thought out, but it was clear that the author, for all of her "research" did not get to the heart of what American teens are really all about. She seemed to talk mainly to white, affluent, female teens which colored her argument. She also seemed to lack basic knowledge about teenaged experiences that differed from her own, which detracted from the narrative severely, at least for me.
