did not like it

Life is too short to read books like this. An awkward teenager who is often hypersensitive and over thinks things is our narrator and the other characters are just as dull. No plot, just the rambling setting of a prep school which Curtis uses as a basis to comment on random and unrelated subjects. Some of the narration is cringe inducing. For example, when the narrator walks in on two of her female classmates having sex, her comment is "Sex was sexy". How profound. The book is filled with musings like this, so it's best avoided.
