Overview

These five friends came to Dexter to get a college degree.
What they'll really get is an education.

When five freshmen arrive at Dexter College, a small liberal arts school in the quiet town of Home, Maine, the drama unfolds as quickly as the first keg is tapped. There's Shipley--blonde and beautiful, the object of envy and more than a little lust. Her edgy roommate, Eliza, came to Dexter to get noticed, and she has the attitude and the mouth to prove it. Tom is a jock-turned-artist--handsome, privileged, used to getting his own way. Sensitive Nick is Tom's wake-and-bake, pot-smoking roommate. And then there's Adam Gatz, a freckle-faced local boy and his not-so-little sister, Tragedy.

As Shipley, Eliza, Tom, Nick, and Adam find out, the first year of college is more than credits and cramming. It's a time of lust, love, secrecy, and scandal.

Previoiusly released as Cum Laude

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Gossip Girl goes to college in this tart satire of the class of 2014, centering on four mixed-up Dexter College freshmen who stumble through their first semester trying on life, love, and drugs. There's pretty rich girl Shipley, rebel-without-a-cause Eliza, repressed-artist Tom, and hippie-spawn Nick. “With a total population of only nineteen hundred, Dexter was a small college in a small town, but it still felt overwhelming compared to high school,” the kids discover, but the really scary bit is the newfound freedom—from families, histories, and their adolescent identities. In real life, this might be where the adults come in handy, but at Dexter, teachers (other than lesbian Professor Rosen) are nearly nonexistent, and the folks at home are distracted, disillusioned, or dolts. Plenty of Animal House antics and wiseacre banter keep this light and breezy, but von Ziegesar, whose Gossip Girl novels spawned the megahit TV series, adds a crisp and surprisingly steely edge that keeps the precocious teens from devolving entirely into smug knuckleheads.

Library Journal
The “Gossip Girl” author's first adult novel is really more for the college crowd than any actual adult. Shipley, a gorgeous blonde, is the standout hottie in the freshman class at preppy Dexter College. Sebastian and Damascus, two party boys, quickly become her pals, helping her deal with a slightly scary roommate. VERDICT Strictly fluff, with all the swearing, drugs, and sex you've come to expect from von Ziegesar.
