Don't let the title scare you away from this great book: it is actually about a funny and intellectual high schooler and her calamitous adventures of her senior year at a prestigious private school. This book is freshly written and different from anything else you've ever read. At times you may get lost, as the book makes an obscene number of references to other sometimes obscure literature. But the writing is interesting and compelling: don't miss this great read!
