This is a great little collection of essays: highly readable, interesting and well thought-out. The fact that they focus on such an undervalued genre of American cinema is the icing on the cake. If you're a fan of John Hughes, or more recent films like Easy A, or even trashy 1990s teen films like The Craft, it's absolutely worth downloading this book and giving it a read. I *really* enjoyed it.
