it was ok

I partially liked this book because so much of what the author wrote resonated with me because of my own time at the college equivalent of a boarding school, (I had a much better time at Williams than the narrator had at her school, but needless to say I felt a similar culture shock freshman year), so I appreciated her observations, which rang very true to life, but I never got over my contempt for the narrator. I know, she was a high school girl, so I should be more generous, but she was so full of self pity and so not full of action. I wanted her to get off her butt and make the changes in her life necessary to make it better. I couldn't enjoy this book because I felt like hitting her all the time.
