NOW IN PAPERBACK

Curtis Sittenfeld's debut novel, Prep, is an insightful, achingly funny coming-of-age story as well as a brilliant dissection of class, race, and gender in a hothouse of adolescent angst and ambition.

Lee Fiora is an intelligent, observant fourteen-year-old when her father drops her off in front of her dorm at the prestigious Ault School in Massachusetts. Ultimately, Lee's experiences there--complicated relationships with teachers; intense friendships with other girls; an all-consuming preoccupation with a classmate who is less than a boyfriend and more than a crush; and conflicts with her parents, from whom Lee feels increasingly distant--coalesce into a singular portrait of the painful and thrilling adolescence that will be of particular interest to high school students.

Praise for Prep

"Sittenfield neither indulges nor mocks teen angst, but hits it spot on.... Sittenfield... proves herself a natural in this poignant, truthful book."
--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
