Review: The Rise and Fall of a 10th Grade Social Climber



The Rise and Fall of a 10th Grade Social Climber by Lauren Mechling and Laura Moser

Though you know how this YA book will end once you get a few pages in, you keep reading anyway.

Mimi is the new girl at a very different school in NYC, and through a series of miscues and a bet, tries to remake herself into part of the "Coolies". What follows is an exploration of high school social circles, drinking, drugs, sex and who your friends really are.

Sharp but funny, this is a good recommendation for (slightly more mature) teens.
