Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

From the best-selling author of American Wife, Eligible and You Think It, I'll Say It.

Lee Fiora is a shy 14-year-old when she leaves small-town Indiana for a scholarship at Ault, an exclusive boarding school in Massachusetts. Her head is filled with images from the school brochure of handsome boys in sweaters leaning against old brick buildings, girls running with lacrosse sticks across pristine athletics fields, everyone singing hymns in chapel. But as she soon learns, Ault is a minefield of unstated rules and incomprehensible social rituals, and Lee must work hard to find - and maintain - her place in the pecking order.

Critic Reviews

"Sittenfeld writes girls and women as they truly are, with shades of light and dark, with and without grace, apologetic as well as fearless." (Bim Adewunmi, Guardian)

"Prep might just be my favourite book." (Pandora Sykes)

"Sittenfeld shares with Salinger a knack of capturing, in effortless prose, a teenager mindset." (The Times)

Great book

It’s a great book which I remember reading about 10-12 years ago! I just have a problem with the reading/performance. The male voices are irritating and I feel she misses the mark with how they are supposed to be expressed/read, having read it before.
