Summary
In this examination of white and Mexican-American girls coming of age in California's Central Valley, the author turns class theory on its head and offers new tools for understanding the ways in which class identity is constructed and, at times, fails to be constructed in relationship to color, ethnicity, gender, adn sexuality. Documenting the categories of subculture and style that high school students use to explain class and racial/ethnic differences among themselves, she depicts the complex identity performances of contemporary girls
