Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Alexandra Robbins rips into the secret, sordid underbelly of sororities.” Vanity Fair
“Robbins makes suggestions for reforming sororities—more adult supervision, ending pledging, et cetera…although the demystification that comes from reading her front-line account may be the best prescription.” Publishers Weekly
“Robbins’ account of life inside the sorority house still makes for fascinating reading. Following four sorority sisters through their first year in the house, a world of sex, drugs, eating disorders, and insecurity is revealed…the author really scores is in her analysis of why otherwise intelligent and sensitive women would sacrifice their independence, and often self-respect, for the sake of an artificially engineered secret society.” Booklist
