Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters, by Meredith Zeitlin
A charming, fun, well-done bit of New Yorky fluff. A group of girls are determined to stand out in their freshman year, and each find a way to do so, through soccer, theater, boys and so on. A good bit of underage drinking, taken very casually by the 14 year old protagonist, Kelsey, but essentially a very sweet, cute novel.

Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
