This story was like a mix between Sex and the City and Gilmore Girls (You know, after Rory has left and gone to college…)
It is *definitely* a book for mature audiences.
There was adult language, sex, nudity and drug use. Sometimes, lots of it.
Not that it bothered me, but readers should be aware as they pick up this title that the “young” in “young adult” really doesn’t apply here.
It was *so* interesting to learn about life at Harvard. I don’t think I would be able to hack it.
I think most girls can relate to Callie’s attempts to fit in in a place where what you look like matters more than anything else.
It’s really easy to get wrapped up in the parties and other social obligations.
Alexis Thorndale was a good antagonist — the perfect East Coast queen in her Chanel shoes and pearls.
There’s a good variety of characters in the roommates and the boys across the hall, as well as Callie’s love interests.
The only thing that really bothered me was the cliff-hanger ending. I know there will be more books in the series, but I really wish this book would have wrapped up her freshman year, instead of leaving us hanging at Thanksgiving break.
All in all, this was a good read that mature readers will enjoy. It made me wish that I was back in college!
