Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Andrea Marr, the heroine of the bestselling novel Girl, is back. And headed to college. Imagining a typical “J. Crew/college catalog” experience, Andrea leaves Portland to attend prestigious Wellington College in Connecticut. Surrounded by the best and the brightest, she works hard to adjust and keep up. But Andrea has a way finding her own people — not the well-heeled and well-scrubbed — but the weird, the wild, and the brilliant. It isnt long before her college career veers wildly off course. Suddenly her entire future is in question. But in her darkest hour, Andrea will find the key to her destiny.
