It’s Callie’s first year at Harvard University and she needs to get in with the good crowd, or get over it.
Yep, this is one of those books I didn’t finish, and yes, I could lecture about the lack of morality, but I think my original review on Goodreads says it all in a short, sweet and serious way:
The Ivy by Lauren Kunze
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Got to page 110 and stopped.
I don't want to read about a bunch of selfish, self-centered Harvard kids who use their bodies as carelessly as prostitutes and alcoholics and think, "Hey, this is the life!"
Notes on the Names:
Marine Aurelie Clement, called Mimi. I could have died and gone to heaven reading that name! Utterly gorgeous.
Thoughts on the Cover:
I get it now, but I won’t lie, when I first saw it I thought, “Paranormal.”
Parental Book Review *spoilers*
I can’t very well do a real Parental Book Review here, but the reason I stopped reading this book was because of the loose sexual standards, the christian-trashy and the flippant consumption of alcohol. That should tell you something.
