During her unparalleled fifty-year history, Barbie has been the doll that some people love—and some people love to hate. There’s no question she’s influenced generations, but to what end? Acclaimed nonfiction author Tanya Lee Stone takes an unbiased look at how Barbie became the icon that she is, and at the impact that she’s had on our culture (and vice versa). Featuring passionate anecdotes and memories from a range of girls and women, and a foreword by Meg Cabot, this book explores the Barbie phenomenon in a brand-new light.
