Recommended for: Anyone under 17 and does not mind profanity.
Read in January, 2008

A well written, thought provoking, and humorous book about a group of teenagers who're attempting to hack the Harvard administration with on goal in mind: getting a complete slacker admitted into Harvard to prove the depravity of college admissions. Although the whole "scheme" can seem quite corny, Wasserman does a extraordinary job delineating the characters and their emotions during the college admissions process. The book also offers a morale about "standardized tests" and causes us to think about our own future as well, and whether we should let a test, or even a college, determine our future.
