did not like it

** spoiler alert ** I am almost glad I cannot remember who recommended this book to me, b/c I would be questioning their judgment and taste right about now. Seriously, this book is so dumb, you should barely waste your time reading this review, much less the book itself. There is no discernable point, no plot, no rising action, no theme. Just an amorphous semi-autobiographical tale about a girl who has a dysfunctional childhood b/c of a number of reasons including wimpy parents, but perhaps most saliently for purposes of this book, b/c her brother was mentally ill and abused drugs. So her parents sent her to a boarding school (from sophomore to senior years in high school) and she practically ruined her burgeoning swimming career by slovenly personal habits and amoral lifestyle herself with her spoiled rich friends. Note to self: never send my child to a boarding school. This affirmation was basically all I took from the book. SKIP THIS ONE!
