Format: Paperback
I read Privileged on a particularly horrendous airport delay (16 hours) and was immediately intrigued. The premise was fun, and as a big fan of the show I wanted to read the source material. The differences are easily noticable. Megan Smith is described as an average looking size 10, a far cry from Joanna Garcia's striking size 2 frame. The character of Charlie is replaced with Megan's female friend, Charma and sweet, adorable Rose Baker is not as innocent as Lucy Hale portrays her. I was able to read the book with ease in a quick 3 hours and was entertained throughout. Megan is quirky and likable, despite her pesimism, and I loved to hate the Baker Twins. Their antics made me laugh, and gasp in shock and I loved to root for Megan. That said, I wasn't always on Megan's side. Her plan to continue living in Les Anges and getting fat paychecks while she gets as much dirt as possible on the rich so she can write a book, did make her unlikable at times. All in all it is a fun book that is very entertaining and easy to read.

Format: Paperback
Privileged, written by Zoey Dean is a fun read. The basic premise of the book which is basically that Megan has lots of plans - except that she is $75,000.00 in debt because of her school loans - how does she make money to pay the debt down? She gets a great offer! Tutor two higly spoiled 17 year old twins and Megan's loans will be paid off if the twins get into Duke.

I loved this premise. You just know that you are going to end up reading a story that will be just a little bit out there and will demonstrated how truly spoiled little rich kids really are.

The twins reminded me of a cross between the Olsen twins and the Hiltons. I really love to hate these spoiled girls, but I gotta say, I was not a huge fan of Megan either.

No matter, despite the fact that I did not really like the characters (and this was intentional on the part of the author I am sure), the writing is quick, witty, funny and just plain fun. Grab this book if you are feeling a little down and need to remind yourself how ridiculous the other half can be.

A Kid's Review on January 25, 2010
Format: Paperback
Megan Smith is in extremely deep debt. She does not know how to pay off her college loans. She had an extraordinary dream in journalism. But all of that hard work from college was pretty much wasted, because of her large debt. She does actually have a job at a tabloid magazine called Scoop. It's not a very good job but she's doing everything she can to get her debt paid off. Megan has a boyfriend named James. She always questions why he is with her when she is so jealous of his ex girlfriend. His ex had plump lips a perfect body and long beautiful blonde hair. So she is grateful that he still likes her, but his parents never invited her to vacation with them. They invited his ex girlfriend plenty of times. They didn't seem to think she was good enough for their perfect son. She attempted to buy concert tickets for his favorite band but they were stolen by a boy on a bike with a shaved head. She was devastated. It cost her a valuable t-shirt signed by her parents favorite band.
Finally she caught a break. Her boss didn't think she was working up to her standards and she wasn't performing. Like at the weekly meetings, that she was lucky to even go to, she had no good ideas for articles and she was just out of place. So her boss offered her a once in a life time chance. She was going to send her off to Florida. She would put her on a private jet and a car was waiting to take her outside. Her boss said that if she could tutor Rose and Sage Baker then all her debt would be paid off. Megan automatically was interested but extremely cautious. The Baker twins were known for being extremely rich and snobby. They had no limits or consequences. But their grandmother who was filthy rich wanted them to go to Duke University. Everyone in their family succeeded there.
