The Run-down: Prep is about the hopes, fears and experiences of a teenager in a prep school in Massachusetts and the world she longs to fit in. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
Why I keep turning its pages: I’m reading this book because in one way or another it reminds me of my experiences as a teenager. As I began to read it, I feared it would be a shallow read, but at this point I’m finding it quite interesting. I can relate to some of the things the main character goes through. Don’t we love it when we can relate to one or two aspects of a story? I’m curious about the concluding thought though.
To Review or Not to Review: I will most likely review this book.
