Wide-ranging and thoroughly researched, Games Girls Play helps us understand how girls make sense of video games that have been designed for and marketed to them. More critically, Cunningham elevates girls' voices by presenting their thoughts in their own words. Games Girls Play is a detailed examination of how commercial game design, discourses about youth and gender, and efforts at promoting gaming literacy create a complex and contradictory cultural terrain that must be negotiated on- and off-screen. -- Matthew Thomas Payne, University of Notre Dame
