by Susan Shapiro Barash




Overview -

Tripping the Prom Queen is a groundbreaking investigation into the dark secret of female friendship: rivalry.

* How rivalry is different among women than among men.

* Why women find it irresistible to trip the prom queen.
* Useful strategies to stop the competition and forge a new kind of relationship with other women.
