Did you know that October is National Book Month? Celebrate by taking some time out of your busy schedule to relax with a good read. We recommend Curtis Sittenfeld’s novel Prep – a poignant narrative of a naive teen’s journey through four years of boarding school. Trust us when we say that this novel will make you appreciate your BFF’s companionship more than ever.
Check out this summary from Publisher’s Weekly:
A self-conscious outsider navigates the choppy waters of adolescence and a posh boarding school’s social politics in Sittenfeld’s A-grade coming-of-age debut. The strong narrative voice belongs to Lee Fiora, who leaves South Bend, Ind., for Boston’s prestigious Ault School and finds her sense of identity supremely challenged. Now, at 24, she recounts her years learning “everything I needed to know about attracting and alienating people.”
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and most importantly – you’ll never put it down. Now get reading, Biffles!
