Girls Gone Mild
Wendy Shalit, author of "A Return to Modesty: The Lost Virtue" has a new book, "Girls Gone Mild: It's Not Bad to be Good". Her first book was written at the ripe old age of 23 and is well written, and interesting. Every parent should read it. You will find out exactly what is going on at college campi across the country.
Wendy Shalit was raised as a secular Jew but converted to Orthodox judaism- if you read "A Return to Modesty" you will figure out why. Let me just hint that it has a lot to do with tradition. Rather than waxing and waning about the book- let me just say she's good. She gets it and in spite of the fact that I hate the cover and am less than crazy about the title, this book will be well worth reading and buying. It's sure to be an excellent antidote to the naivete that can afflict some parents.
There is also a blog- Modestly Yours that Wendy contributes to.
