In her book, Alexandra Robbins explores the ways group identity theories play out among cliques - and the students they exclude. She reveals the new labels students stick onto each other today, the long-term effects of this marginalization, and the reasons students falling under these categories are often shunned.

Some good points. Took forever to read though...

"Whether excluded by their peers or marginalized by their schools, many of them believed that they were socially inadequate. But there was something special about them that made me both want to get to know them better and believe that they would accomplish interesting, creative, and perhaps great things as adults."

"It will get better" from a source more likely to be believed than a parent and the science to back it up. Highly readable. Suggest that every young person going into high school should read this book. Every high school student who refuses to compromise their integrity in order to fit in will be encouraged. Anyone teaching in a middle school/highschool environment would also benefit from a read.
