The girls at Modesta High School feel like they're stuck in some anti-feminist time warp-they're faced with sexism at every turn, and they've had enough. Sponsored by their new art teacher, Ms. Stark, they band together to form the Daughters of Eve. It's more than a school club-it's a secret society, a sisterhood. At first, it seems like they are actually changing the way guys at school treat them. But Ms. Stark urges them to take more vindictive action, and it starts to feel more like revenge-brutalrevenge. Blinded by their oath of loyalty, the Daughters of Eve become instruments of vengeance. Can one of them break the spell before real tragedy strikes?
Daughters of Eve by Lois Duncan, a secret society of girls or a social club? There are 10 members of this exclusive club at Modesta High School. When you get a special invitation, it comes in a special envelope. You get excited and feel special. Only the real popular and smart girls at school are part of this club.
So what is this book about and why was it banned from high schools / middle schools. Well this book about a teacher who was teacher these high school how to be feminist. Tired how boys were treating them, they wanted to make a change. Where I think equal rights for woman and women being treated right is great and I'm all for that. I really don't take any crap off of any guy, but there are right ways to go about things. I think this is where parents may have had a problem with this book.
The teacher in this book was an instigator. She would say things like "your not going to let get away with that, are you?" "don't just break up with him, make him pay" This promoted the girls to take on criminal way to take care of things. The teacher is kind of a crazy man hater and I could not imagine having this woman over a group of girls a role model. These girls go way to far on how they take their revenge, where the teacher should have been promoting a healthy way to deal with feelings and getting the respect you deserve from boys.
The main reason for low rating is that this book ends abruptly. I really didn't get any closure on how the girls turned out or if this physco man hating teacher warped their minds. On the topic of it being banned, I wouldn't want my teenage daughter reading a book like this. I don't think this is healthy way of thinking. I'm all for feminism, but not physco crazy stuff.
