    prep school and parents

    The whole story kept my full attention! I imagined Posh as some sort of true story. It's sad to say that some prestigoius private schools/universities are not always what they seem. As in to say, people view prep schools as being guaranteed easy access to the top universities in the nation. When, honestly, not all students can get into Hrvard, Yale, or Princeton. Also, the relationship bewteen Julianne and Michael was speechless, in a way. There are alot of people with mental disorders, that needs to take their medication as frequently as possible. My favorite character in the story was Dee. I didn;t like the fact that she allows her daughter to talk to her however she wants, but other than that, she has always had that close mother-daughter relationship with Juloianne ( not as "best friends"). Dee was also a real woman that was going through stuff most divorcees go through. The other thing I liked about Dee is that she's done a great jobinsuring that her daughter was secured and protected at all times. Sadly, there some parents today do not show the type of love and affection their children will need.

    My Darling only child , a daughter has dated a Michael' just like the one from this book for 6 years now. I have often thought this might end badly for either or both , but they both have grown up alot now as they are turning 21 at this point. I still pray they end it but if not I embrace it and books like this help a Mom see things and it helps to know their are other mother's out there that feel the same way I do about my child and the people they bring home to you that because of that they become part of your Family if only for a moment or in some cases such as ours for years.

    A delicious satire

    In Manhattan few schools rival the excellence reputation of the exclusive private Griffin High School. The excellence is in terms of its luxurious environs as learning takes a somewhat back seat to test achievement, which the headmistress Katryn The ¿Lazy¿ Hoffman considers education and an affluent environment, the only type of place she can administer though the parents are driving her insane with their absurd demands almost as sublime as that of her husband helping her cope is her affair.--------------------- Scholarship student Julianne Coopersmith feels somewhat of an outsider as almost all her peers are wealthy. She worries about her best friend Morgan Goldfine, whose mother just passed away. Morgan has not been able to move on while Julianne has learned to appreciate her pain in the butt mother whose over-protectiveness has driven Julianne crazy, but is now welcome to a degree. She is also concerned about the recent out of control behavior of her boyfriend, Harvard-bound Michael Avery, whose destructive acts of late have teetered on violence and making Julianne consider dumping him as the mood swings scare her.----------------- This stereotypical satire uses an upper crust Manhattan school as the milieu to lampoon relationships. The two prime hubs, Juliana and Katryn are on the surface opposites, but share a common distaste for the elitist attitude of Griffin even as one cheats on her spouse while the other struggles to remain loyal to her boyfriend. Both feel out of place at the POSH high school. Though similar school days have been in several novels, the dysfunctional relationships that run the gamut make for an amusing look at what vouchers will get the poor though in this case it is a middle class scholarship student who feels out of place.----------- Harriet Klausner
