This New York Times best-seller is a funny and poignant coming-of-age story, a dead-on examination of adolescent angst, and a sharp criticism of America's social structure. Fourteen-year-old Lee Fiora enrolls at the prestigious Ault School of Massachusetts and is surrounded by beautiful, wealthy students. She immediately feels like an outsider, but manages to carve out a niche for herself. Then everything falls apart when Lee's private thoughts become public information.

Professional reviews

"It's hard to understand why Lee Fiora of Indiana actually stays on for all four years at the prestigious Ault School of Massachusetts. She is the quintessential outsider without quite enough brains, and certainly not the beauty, to break into the cliques of wealth that surround her. Julie Dretzin starts out with a core of kindness and understanding for this angst-ridden teenager, but Lee Fiora 's time at Ault is not sufficiently entertaining to hold the listener's interest. Though Dretzin flirts with East Coast and Latino accents, she does not emphasize them. Since the book is supposed to be droll, the narration underlines the dullness and savageness of boarding schools. B.H.B. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
