Journal Entry 1 by ayntastic from Portland, Oregon USA on Saturday, September 03, 2011
"New York Times bestselling author Alexandra Robbins spent a year undercover with a group of sorority girls. Her worst expectations were met, and surpassed - extreme promiscuity, drugs, psychological abuse, racism, violence, and rampant eating disorders were just a few of the problems. But even more surprising was the fact that these abuses were inflicted and endured by intelligent, successful, and attractive young women."

"A book is a mysterious object, I said, and once it floats out into the world, anything can happen. All kinds of mischief can be caused, and there's not a damned thing you can do about it. For better or worse, it's completely out of your control."
Paul Auster

your box made it here safely. I don't see this as the type of book that I will end up reading. But I will set it free into a local Little Free Library to hopefully find an appreciative reader.

I hadn't planned on reading this but then I read the introduction. As a non-traditional student who has been a member of two different honors/education fraternities I have always wondered about the draw of social sororities. When I was a freshman at Eastern Illinois University (which is mentioned several times in this book) I lived in the freshman dorm which was out by the Greek housing. I remember being horrified by the wildness, drinking, and partying going on over there every day of the week.

This was an interesting read. I could see where the author was trying to stay impartial, but by the end I could tell it was hard for her to do so.
