Ever nostalgic for things that never were, the conservative social critic Caitlin Flanagan identifies a stretch between girlhood and womanhood as a developmental chrysalis she calls ”Girl Land.” Using her own cushioned upbringing to muse about momentous events including proms, dating, and diaries, she lobs a few toothless provocations, e.g., ”The mass media in which so many girls are immersed today does not mean them well.” Then she comes up with an equally toothless solution to all that threatens Girl Land: Keep Internet access out of girls’ bedrooms! That’s it? Yep, that’s it. C+
