Reviews

"A unique ethnographic study of girls... Highly recommended."--Choice
"A lively and important contribution to a debate that questions an over-simplified gender-based approach to inequality. An accessible book, sensitively written."--Ethnic And Racial Studies
"Julie Bettie's book is interesting because it looks at the intersection between class, race and gender in the sphere of education in terms of gestures and performance of 'class'... The interdisciplinary orientation of Bettie's book coupled with its combination of theoretical and empirical balance makes it a worthy read."--Allegra Lab
