Cinderella Ate My Daughter – What the new culture of girlhood means for children and the grown-ups who care about them. New York Times bestselling author Peggy Orenstein examines the links between the upsurge in princess products, the rise in cosmetic use among 6-8 year olds, and the ways girls present themselves on Facebook, where identity itself becomes a performance. She gives parents advice and insight on how to help their daughters navigate the rocky road to adulthood.
