"Arresting, entertaining and serious."
--The New York Times
"If feminism is enjoying a revival among young women, much of the credit should go to women such as Jessica Valenti."
"Valenti's writing has a wonderful defiant quality reminiscent of the days of the movement's youth."
--The Washington Post

Basically, don't assign this book if you want to engage in feminist theory, but do if you just want to think about base level feminist issues.
This book is a great place to start to introduce the basics of feminism to young people. I think that the ideal age would be late teens. Curse words abound, which make it a compelling read to young adults, but a bit tiresome for those of us who are no longer excited by the use of "bad" words.
I would however, recommend reading it as well, so that you can have conversations with your teen afterward. It does not dig deep into the details, but that makes it easily digestible for teens who have never encountered these concepts before.
