4.0 out of 5 stars The Ivy by Lauren Kunze, September 23, 2011
This review is from: The Ivy (Hardcover)
I am not a young adult anymore although I do enjoy reading YA books. However, I do enjoy when YA books break out of the high school setting and move into the college setting like The Ivy. The Ivy takes place at Harvard and really enjoy hearing about the experiences of others who went to larger colleges than I did. The authors both attended Harvard so I am sure they used some of their personal experiences to write this book. I really liked the main character Callie. Coming from California to the East Coast must have been a huge culture shock for her and then there are all these guys that fall for her or she falls for. She leaves Evan behind in California and he breaks up with her early in the book. However, they have a secret that eventually comes back to haunt her. She meets Gregory on the first day she is there and develops this weird love hate relationship with her. Then there is Matt, Gregory's roommate and the guy I think Callie should be with. He is such a sweetheart and really cares about her as a person. He reminds me a lot of my boyfriend (I guess that is why I am partial to him). She ends up with Clint and he helps her into this world of glamour and parties which she enjoys but it doesn't come without hassles or problems. Her three roommates are great characters as well and their interactions remind me of college life and getting to know other people in this new and different world. I am really looking forward to the next book and hope there is some resolution to the problems Callie has at the end of this book.
