Schooled - Book Review

I just finished reading Schooled by Anisha Lakhani.

Honestly, I picked it up from the Barnes and Noble clearance area because it was $2. I was desperate for some new reads and I judged a book by it's cute cover and catchy summary. Oops ;)

Schooled is about Anna Taggert, a fresh graduate from Columbia, who just landed her dream teaching job at an elite private school in Manhattan. She soon realizes this school is unconventional in many ways and all of the students have "tutors". The tutors are actually private school teachers from all over the area. At first, Anna is against the whole tutoring thing. Students should do their own work, right? Wrong. When the students have rich parents, anything goes. Eventually her teaching salary and run down apartment get the best of her and she goes over to the dark side. The road to the dark side was paved with Chanel bags and Jimmy Choo shoes. The question is...was it worth it?

This is basically Gossip Girl from a teacher's perspective. I loved it, definitely entertaining. Totally worth it - clearance priced or not.

What are you reading?

  1. This sounds super interesting! Don't ya love the less than $5 book finds?! I read a lot of young romance novels. Right now I'm reading the Fallen Series by Lauren Kate.

  2. That sounds interesting! I've never heard of it, but I'll have to go look at our bookstore and see if I can find it cheap as well. :)


  3. I agree with the other ladies! This does sound very interesting, and who doesn't love a $2 book? Especially if you're not sure whether or not you'll like it. :D

    Mostly Lisa

  4. two dollars?! seriously? it's worth a try for that price, for sure.
