Mean Girl to the Rescue!

How'm I gonna save the world when the world ain't ready?

Right now I'm reading Prep, by Curtis Sittenfeld, and it's better than I expected it to be. I picked it up on a whim at the library; I think I'd read something about it in Publisher's Weekly, and I guess I was expecting it to be a vain, silly novel, maybe sort of like A Secret History but without the intrigue and murder.

So far it has proven to be very evocative and well-written. I don't completely understand Lee and her desire to be liked by the upper crust of Ault, but I do relate to her on some misanthropic level.
