Reviews

This is a brilliant, beautifully written exploration of the complex feelings that emerge from hearing and seeing the contemporary girl teen film. Drawing on a wealth of examples, and framed within the dynamic turn to affect and sensorial aesthetics, Samantha Colling has given due weight to the cultural importance of these films and paratexts, the fun at the pulsating heart of their narratives, and the way girling and feeling conjoin and collide. Breathtaking. * Sean Redmond, Associate Professor in Screen and Design, Deakin University, Australia * Girls just want to have fun, and Samantha Colling shows us how. This lovely book thinks hard about the ways that recent teen girl films give their audiences pleasure and enjoyment. Colling opens up and enlivens a popular aesthetic mode that is all too often either ignored, or treated only with disparagement and condescension. * Steven Shaviro, DeRoy Professor of English, Wayne State University, USA *
