Book Reviews

Praise for Alexandra Robbins' previous book Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities

"Robbins writes with empathy and affection for her college-aged subjects. Pledged is a powerful warning and an astonishing slice of American life."
--Washington Monthly

"Fascinating and, in the end, highly alarming. Pledged is amazing in the same way that reality TV is amazing: It's the car crash you can't take your eyes off of . . . Every parent of a college-bound daughter should read this book. And Alexandra Robbins: You go girl."
--The New Republic (online)

"Compelling reading."
--The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

--Austin American-Statesman


"Alexandra Robbins rips into the secret, sordid underbelly of sororities."
--Vanity Fair
