AUTHOR

Robbins, Alexandra

SUMMARY

New York Times bestselling author Alexandra Robbins became curious about whether the stereotypes of sororities were actually true, so she spent a year undercover with a group of girls in a typical sorority. The sororities' sordid behavior exceeded her worst expectations-drugs, psychological abuse, extreme promiscuity, racism, violence, and rampant eating disorders were just a few of the problems. But even more surprising was the fact that these abuses were inflicted and endured by intelligent, successful, and attractive young women. Why is the desire to belong to a sorority so powerful that women are willing to engage in this type of behavior-especially when the women involved are supposed to be considered "sisters"? What does membership in these ritualistic groups truly require of a sister? Robbins introduces us to Vicki, Sabrina, Caitlin, and Amy, sorority sisters who could each be the girl next door. As Robbins joins in their sorority life-from their giddy highs to their abysmal lows-she conveys the perspective of a sorority girl with the eyes of an outsider. Better than anyone else, Robbins understands what drives these young women and their friends-their passions and their fears. The result is an extraordinarily compelling narrative that reads like a bestselling novel. With fly-on-the-wall voyeurism and remarkable insight, Pledged manages to both expose the dark side of sorority life and endear its participants to us.Robbins, Alexandra is the author of 'Pledged The Secret Life of Sororities', published 2004 under ISBN 9781401300463 and ISBN 1401300464.
