Rambling profile of two all-female high schools - a rich suburban prep school in southern California and an poor urban minority prep school in Harlem. Follows several students from enrollment thru college applications, graduation, and some updates from after enrolled in college. Covers the lives of the administrators, teachers, parents, counselors, advocates. More of a moving target, discussing changing opinions of the schools than discourse or study into the topic. An interesting read, but not comprehensive or scholarly.
