    1. hellions had a lot of potential but it didn't exactly live up to it. i felt like her critiques and observations were very superficial, looking only at what's on the surface. there was no room for any other kind of readings of these women besides what the author thought. i was also extremely bothered by the fact that any woman who decided to have children and/or get married and/or find happiness in domesticity was considered weak and not a feminist. that frustrated me a lot and put a sour mood on [...]

    2. YOU'VE GOT TO READ THIS FUCKING BOOK!Then read her book CINDERELLA'S BIG SCORE!By way of review let me share my blurb on the back of the book:Raha blazes forth to embolden all the F words! One of our keenest cultural critics has done it again, her mind on the fierce poundings where our hearts lead us! Raha is proof that it takes a rebel to know one!AND I MEAN EVERY FUCKING WORD!RAHA RULES!CAConradCAConrad

    3. I felt this author's message was a bit inconsistent. I also found she would creatively edit some of the information she referenced in order to butress her point futher which made me doubt the veracity of the book of the opinions she was expressing.I was also disappointed that she did not blast HBO's Sex in the City, which I find to be one of the worst, sterotypical, pathetic portrayal of women to come in a long time. I saw they SATC picture towards the end of the book and was relishing reading h [...]

    4. This book opened up with some great points about rebellion. But the author seemed too judgemental to certain rebels in history. Calling some 'female rebels' out for letting themselves become sexualized when the 'rebels' the author seemed to hold in high regard as authentic were sexualized characters in the exact same way. Not to mention the many other rebelious innovators and artists she denied a real backstory to or just excluded altogether.

    5. I was expecting more, although I don't know why. Similar in style to Raha's other book, Cinderella's Big Score, which means a lot of personal opinion and not much meat.

    6. An entertaining and quick read about women rebels. I was expecting this to read more like multiple biographies, but I found it to be more like reading a really long copy of Bitch magazine.
