A very quick, but insightful read into the craziness that is the private school system in Manhattan. Although it is a work of fiction, one gets the impression that it is not that far off the mark. If you liked Nanny Diaries you will definitely like this book.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I read it before the movie came out. I've seen the movie and this book is a more in depth look at the students' diaries. Very eye opening!
