Gossipy Girls

Girls by Tucker Shaw (NY: Abrams, 2009).

Boarding schools and gossip just go together, don't they? Peggy is learning all about the incestuous world of Maroon Bells School for Girls in Aspen, Colorado, where everyone seems to be talking about everyone else. Unfortunately for Peggy, a lot of the talk seems to be focusing on her best friend Mary, her cheating boyfriend, and the skanky store clerk he's seeing. How does Peggy cope? Food dreams--elaborate menus and cooking schemes, some of them carried out at the restaurant where she works. Recipes included!

Great speed read for teen girls, grades 7&up. Sexual situations, language, alcohol, drugs.
