The Book

American Girls, by Nancy Jo Sales, documents the effects of social media on the latest generation of teenage girls across the nation. She explores how the media exposed on social platforms bring change to body images, sexual norms, and communication in adolescent females. From first crushes to nude images, American Girls covers it all and the role technology plays in all of it.
