4.0 out of 5 stars A comment from one of those kids 3 Aug. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Well if you open this book you'll see my friends and classmates . . . Although I wonder why the pictures in this book are considerably older than the copyright date, this book does and excellent job of profiling the kids of LA in the early nineties not 1997. California experienced quite an economic uproar since since those Bar Mitzah days! Also, I wonder why this book is entitled "Growing Up in the Shadow of Hollywood." As one of those "shadowed" youths ( I attended the Harvard-Westlake School whose prom clad students appear in the beginning of the book), I can assure you that Hollywood is neither the mainstay of the Beverly Hills culture nor is it the mainstay of the South Central culture, both which are depicted in this book. Nevertheless, this book creates a realistic picture of life in 90210, 90077, and the all the other 90000's . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb In Every Respect 23 Dec. 2007
By Jack Combs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
From the Introduction by Carrie Fisher, the extraordinary photographs by a young photographer, Lauren
Greenfield (whose subsequent work more than justified our excitement over this book), to the afterword
by Richard Rodriquez, who unfailingly expresses in the most sparse and articulate prose, the exact phrase
to describe what we all wish we had the power to think and say, this is a book of both accomplishment
beyond her years, and the promise of extraordinary work in the future.

Buy it. Read it and review the images many times. It only gets better with each insight gained from picking
it up again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beverly Hills 90201 meets Village of the Damned 22 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The only thing scarier than some of the pictures in this chronicle of teenage LA, is knowing that it's only the tip of the iceberg. From the rich brats to the gangsters and their wannabe imitations, Greenfield does a great job of capturing the shallow lives of these kids. Almost Jacob Riis-like in its literal illumination of the subject

5.0 out of 5 stars I am in the book 16 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The book was brillant. It showed every aspect of living in LA. The articles and reviews that surrounded the book after it's publisihng were off base. Lauren should be Proud of herself.
