Genre: New popular fiction/women's fiction
Review: Follow Penelope, a socially awkward freshmen, during her first year at Harvard. She is weirded out by the other students' obsessions with studying and sad excuses for parties. She is a memorable, funny character. This book has a very intimate voice with over-the-top funny stories. You will probably cringe along with Penelope as you remember the way college friendships are formed, awkward moments, and more. A realistic yet exagerrated novel that is hilarious at times. A fast-read with great character development and dialogue.
