Amy Chua isn't the only writer in the "Tiger Mom" pack.

The controversial author's daughter, Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld, has started a blog.

"New Tiger in Town" includes posts about the teen's dad ("I trust my father more than anyone else in the world."), Q&As ("Q: What is your expectation of college life? A: Sleep all day, rave all night. Learn by osmosis.") and her still undecided college choice -- Yale or Harvard ("I'll keep you posted.").

So, why did Chua-Rubenfeld, 18, decide to start the blog?

"When the whole world's calling you a mindless robot, you kind of get the urge to start talking! Even though 'Sophia' in the book is much more impressive than Sophia in real life," she writes. "I think I'm sullying my impeccable image one post at a time, but so be it."
