How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls, by Zoey Dean

This was a quick read that I had looked forward to, but did not enjoy. Megan, a recent Yale graduate with a ton of student loans can't find a fantastic job at a 'serious' magazine, so takes a job at a fashion magazine, poor thing. But she doesn't fit in, of course, because she is so freaking intellectual and keeps pitching political articles and irritating the rest of the staff, who, despite being apparently brainless bimbettes can at least remember what kind of magazine they work for and even dress themselves well, unlike Megan. So she gets fired. (I bet the bimbettes had a party to celebrate.)

Anyway, Megan gets kind of tricked into becoming a tutor to a pair of heiress sisters (I know...) who are evil to her and everyone else until Megan discovers that they are actually brilliant at making databases (I know...) and they all become close friends.

In between there was a ton of nonsense about clothes, mistaken and false identities, waxing, and tutoring. It was pretty awful.
