Vendela Vida has put the nail in the head with this book. The issues that are discussed here -- female gang and cult initiations, teen marriage, promiscuity -- are very accurate and, despite having witnessed this sort of thing in real life, shocking. Vida has evidently done her homework. She has proven that young women today aren't the shadow of how they're perceived by family members. Are girls still considered to be sugar and spice and everything nice? Not according to this incredible work of non-fiction.
