How to Teach Filthy Rich Teen by Zoey Dean
Well known for her "A-List" series( which I have not--will not-- read) Dean has written a cute novel about a struggling Yale graduate hoping for a career in journalism(yes, you see shades of "The Devil Wears Prada") but sadly can't find a job she feels worthy of her talents and winds up an SAT tutor (yes, you see shades of "The Nanny Diaries") to a pair of debutantes. However, with appealing characters who learn not to judge a book by it's cover, How to Teach Filthy Rich Teens manages to hit some very genuine notes. I hope to see this author continue to develop her talents for realistic (and just fluffy enough for school vacation!) stories.
