"Reading Like a Girl argues convincingly that authors writing for young girls create narrative intimacy through a variety of complex mechanisms, all of which affect both the reading experience and the social construction of the reader. Reading Like a Girl is a sophisticated and significant theoretical work that will permanently shift how feminists and narrative theorists alike analyze adolescent literature."--Roberta Seelinger Trites, distinguished professor at Illinois State University
