An interesting look into a world I had never considered -- that of a professional college application counselor. Annie was a top student who went to Princeton but washed out of her PhD program at University of Chicago. Now, unable to decide what to do with her life, she runs a small business, advising rich kids on how to prepare their applications for admissions to America's best schools.

Annie is so insightful about the teenage mind she should be a psychologist. She understands immediately why and how each kid has been damaged and what they must do to heal.Unfortunately she's clueless about her own life, not recognizing that she has an eating disorder or that her boyfriend is a class A creep.

But the pages keep turning as you read about Sadie, the poor little rich girl, and Christina, the actually poor immigrant and William who just figured out he's gay and came out to his parents in his application essay.

I got a little tired of reading all the essays, but this was an original story. Recommended.
