Review:

"[Peggy Orenstein's] addictively readable book manages, somehow, to be simultaneously warm and chilling"--Rebecca Traister, author of Big Girls Don't Cry: The Election that Changed Everything for American Women

"I wish I'd had Peggy Orenstein's thought-provoking, wise, and entertaining new book, Cinderella Ate My Daughter, to comfort me and to help me navigate the Pepto Bismol pink aisles of the toy store and the cotton candy pink channels of the TV dial. Every mother needs to read this."--Ayelet Waldman, author of Bad Mother

"Reading "Cinderella" is like hanging out with a straight-talking, hilarious friend; taking a fascinating seminar on 21st century girlhood; and discovering a compendium of wise (but never preachy) advice on raising girls. A must-read for any parent trying to stay sane in a media saturated world."--Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out and The Curse of the Good Girl
