Description

From the beloved author of When You Read This, a smart, sharply observed novel about gender and class on a contemporary Southern college campus in the spirit of The Female Persuasion and Prep.

Carter University: â??The Harvard of the South.â?

Annie Stoddard was the smartest girl in her small public high school in Georgia, but now that sheâ??s at Carter, it feels like sheâ??s got â??Scholarship Studentâ? written on her forehead.

Bea Powers put aside misgivings about attending college in the South as a biracial student to take part in Carterâ??s Justice Scholars program. But even within that rarefied circle of people trying to change the world, it seems everyone has a different idea of what justice is.

Stayja York goes to Carter every day, too, but she isnâ??t a student. She works at the Coffee Bean, doling out almond milk lattes to entitled co-eds, while trying to put out fires on the home front and save for her own education.

Their three lives intersect unexpectedly when Annie accuses fourth-year student Tyler Brand of sexual assault. Once Bea is assigned as Tylerâ??s student advocate, the girls find themselves on opposite sides as battle lines are drawn across the picture-perfect campusâ??and Stayja finds herself invested in the caseâ??s outcome, too.

Told through the viewpoints of Annie, Bea, and Stayja, Privilege is a bracingly clear-eyed look at todayâ??s campus politics, and a riveting story of three young women making their way in a world not built for them.
