From the Back Cover:

Heavy Hitting Praise for Tripping the Prom Queen:
"Tripping the Prom Queen" is a must read for women who want to reach their full individual potential and form strong relationships with friends, family, and work colleagues. Although it pulls no punches in the ways women can be their own worst enemies, it also shows a way out for any woman wanting to improve her sense of self and her experiences with others."
-Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees And Wannabees
 
 " Tripping The Prom Queen provides a dramatic, up-close look at the dark world of female envy and competition.  Susan Shapiro Barash compellingly dissects the myths and delusions of female friendship, and offers much-needed insights on how we might work to achieve true solidarity among women." 
-Judith Warner, author of Perfect Madness:  Motherhood in an Age of Anxiety
 
" Tripping the Prom Queen is a lively, thoughtful reflection on the Odd Girl Out all grown up. Barash gracefully interweaves incisive analysis and everyday lessons we could all stand to learn, deepening the conversation about female aggression with an honest voice women will recognize."
-Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out
