These five friends came to Dexter to get a college degree.
What they’ll really get is an education.

Gossip Girl goes to college in this tart satire . . . crisp and surprisingly steely.”
Publishers Weekly

When five freshmen arrive at Dexter College, a small liberal arts school in the quiet town of Home, Maine, the drama unfolds as quickly as the first keg is tapped. There’s Shipley—blonde and beautiful, the object of envy and more than a little lust. Her edgy roommate, Eliza, came to Dexter to get noticed, and she has the attitude and the mouth to prove it. Tom is a jock-turned-artist—handsome, privileged, used to getting his own way. Sensitive Nick is Tom’s wake-and-bake, pot-smoking roommate. And then there’s Adam Gatz, a freckle-faced local boy and his not-so-little sister, Tragedy.

As Shipley, Eliza, Tom, Nick, and Adam find out, the first year of college is more than credits and cramming. It’s a time of lust, love, secrecy, and scandal.


“You’re going to want this New York Times bestselling author’s new novel in your beach tote this summer.” ”

“Enough scandal that the pages practically propel themselves.”
