it was amazing

I read this book years ago and saw it on my friend's bookshelf today. I had to add it to my bookshelf because I LOVED it. It's about a girl who grew up fairly poor in a small town and she goes off to college. It put right back in college. It was amazing! One of my favorite books ever. All of you have to read it!!!

JennyDB So the author apparently had a daughter who went to Duke and I've heard this was written about my alma mater. When I read this it reminded me so much of Duke not only in the physical descriptions but also the social dynamics - good and (mostly) bad. Anyway, I couldn't put this book down either. Incredible.

Molly I think I need to read it again. I can totally see how the school dynamics parallel Duke.
