The Prep school back drop brought immediate comparisons to such movies as Rushmore and Cruel Intentions. Both stories illustrated the struggles of "fitting in" personified through a rigid social structure. As a product of prep schools myself, I identified with our four main characters as they interact in their accepted high school dynamic. Some portions did seem a bit under developed however part of this appears to be intentional in order to highlight the immaturity and lack of a robust vocabulary teenagers often display. What remains significant is Egi's courage to tackle themes that are universal in a manner that felt legitimate to her story. An impressive read. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
The book isn't all superficial, the author isn't afraid to tackle more serious issues facing teenagers today. Without giving too much away, she does touch on mental issues that are often swept under the rug or ignored in our society.
Some of the writing was a bit juvenile, however, this book was written by a 17 year old girl. I have no doubt she will one day have an amazing writing career. Kudos to you for writing this honest account of the secret lives of teenage girls!
