by Lucy Jackson
A posh (obviously) prep school on Manhattan's Upper East Side sets the stage for various dramas in this slim volume.
Main characters include:
Morgan, a senior whose mother just died
Julianne, Morgan's best friend and charity case
Dee, Julianne's mom who was a great novelist and now drives a cab
Kathryn "Lazy" Hoffman, headmistress and adulteress
Michael, Julianne's psychotic boyfriend
This was a quick, fun read. The characters are fairly well-developed and interesting. And the cover on this book is too attractive to ignore.
