The Bling Ring: How a Gang of Fame-Obsessed Teens Ripped Off Hollywood and Shocked the World - Nancy Jo Sales

This is a really good book! It's more than heavily sociological! It isn't just a tome about kids wanting to be rich; it goes into the culture of narcissism and draws on tropes from gender to over-diagnosis to post Cold-War jingoism. By no means merely about pop culture!
