Posh: a novel
If you liked Prep or The Nanny Diaries, you'll like this one. It's the world of the New York elite high schools, but from the headmistress's point of view. Kathryn "Lazy" Hoffman has to balance disciplining her spoiled students who expect (through experience!) that they can sail through life without rules or work with pacifying the egos and emotions of the students' powerful, wealthy parents and the school's benefactors. A thin line to walk, indeed.
