The Gossip Girl Wears Prada

Imagine graduating from a top-notch liberal arts college, and finding out that your life's ambition to be a teacher is "disappointing" to your parents.  Imagine that in their extreme disappointment, they cut you off financially.  Imagine still that you find your dream job, move to New York City to begin your dream life - and then find that teaching is not all its cracked up to be....financially or otherwise.  Schooled by Anisha Lakhani is a tongue-in-cheek look at what happens to an idealistic young woman when she encounters the reality of her life's choice.  This is Lakhani's first novel, and I am betting it's a bit of a roman a clef, since, according to her website, she taught English until 2006 at the Dalton School on Manhattan's Upper East Side.  Part Gossip Girl for grown ups, part The Devil Wears Prada, Schooled is a fun book that won't disappoint.  Maybe Anna, the main character in Schooled, is the real Gossip Girl? She certainly could be. XOXO...
