Summary
Lee Fiora is an intelligent fourteen-year-old when her father drops her off in front of her dorm at the prestigious Ault School in Massachusetts, leaving behind her animated, affectionate family in South Bend, Indiana. Ault is a cloistered world of jaded, attractive teenagers who spend summers in Nantucket and speak in their own clever shorthand. Both intimidated and fascinated by her classmates, Lee becomes a shrewd observer of--and eventually a participant in--their rituals and mores. As a scholarship student, she constantly feels like an outsider and is drawn to and repelled by other loners. By the time she's a senior, Lee has created a hard-won place for herself at Ault. But when her behavior takes a self-destructive and highly public turn, her carefully crafted identity within the community is shattered
Summary
During the late 1980s, fourteen-year-old Lee Fiora leaves behind her close-knit, middle-class Indiana family to enroll in an elite co-ed boarding school in Massachusetts, becoming a shrewd observer of, and eventually a participant in, their rituals and customs
