I received this ARC from First Lit. It was an interesting book. Penelope is the typical stumble through high school type of girl, more on the nerdy side. This story is her first year on campus at Harvard. She knows no one and doesn't make friends easily. This tells of her stumbling along at Harvard, where she somehow survives that first year and makes it to year two.

I have read a few "this is my life in college" type books, and so far this is the best written of those. The only problem I have is there really is no character development, but that may also be because the main character, Penelope, just doesn't understand people and just muddles along, so the rest of the characters are just there.
