View the Table of Contents .nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Read the Introduction . "Lively tales of girls who long for the lives of male scholars, and rebels who visit strip clubs, smoke pot, and dream of high-powered careers."Books to Watch out For "Stephanie Levine's book is full of surprises."Midstream "A fascinating read for anyone interested in youth culture." Youth Today"In an era seemingly plagued with sex, anorexia and depression among our nation's girls, a page fromMystics, Mavericks, and Merrymakersis a refreshing peek into the possibilities for growth, strength and self."The Jewish New Weekly of Northern California "At all times, Levine's genuine respect for the community shines through. The book is eminently readable and undoubtedly fascinating."Jewish Chronicle "A vivid portrayal of the Lubavitcher community." Library Journal "[Levine's] empathy is palpable in each one of the profiles. Levine has a natural, artful style and writes with a lively and keen vision." Moment magazine "Her findings are fascinating." Jewish Telegraph "Levine treats all her subjects with respect. At the core, this is a popularly written academic study." KLIATT"Levine vividly portrays these girls, their hopes and their struggles, as well as her own feelings towards Orthodoxy and the Lubavitch way of life."

Lubavitcher Hasidim are famous for their efforts to inspire secular Jews to become more observant and for their messianic fervor.
