Book 32 - Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld

This was another book that I eyeballed in Barnes several times and just never bought. When I happened upon it in the library, I snatched it up. Score!

The main character, Lee, is a freshman in highschool at the beginning of the book. She is on scholarship at an elite boarding school and surrounded by rich kids. She is acutely aware of all of their differences and is so exhaustively aware of how each thing she does, says and wears is being scrutinized by unforgiving eyes. The story follows her through her 4 years at Ault. It was a good story and easy for me to relate to even though all the characters were so much younger than I am. Every female that has had even an ounce of insecurity will relate on some level to Lee. I recommend the book.

I also took a trip to the used book store. (I am becoming way more thrifty with my reading habit. $20-$25 a book that takes me 2 days to read is ridiculous, so I am now a big library whore as well as a hookah for the used book stores.) I turned in several books I have read over the last few months and managed to get myself the book I am currently reading (and almost done with) called Reinventing Mona and I also got the hubs 3 James Patterson books. The best part is that I still have a credit there so I can go pick out a few more books for free. I am all about the free. :)

I just finished this book not long ago. It was mildly entertaining, but too young for me really. Part of the problem may have been that I went to prep school (not QUITE like Ault, but many similarities) and so I disliked some of the prep school prejudice.
