Kids say (3 ):

MISS EDUCATED is a well-written novel about several characters navigating their way through life and boarding school on the East Coast. Parker Cole is a social outcast and marches to her own drummer, Chase Dobbs is a popular kid whose misbehaving and poor grades has him on thin ice both at school and at home. Parker and Chase get thrown together for a school project and develop a close bond. The book takes us through their second semester at Wellington as they both try to figure out where they belong and how they feel about each other.

The characters are well-developed and the dialogue is smart. The authors -- all three of them -- do a great job adding vulnerability to the characters. Unlike other books in this genre, Miss Educated does more than regurgitate stereotypes. Teens will love the Wellington students' camaraderie and will identify with likeable characters Chase and Parker. Parents will not enjoy the drug use or lavish displays of wealth and alcohol, but will find plenty of opportunities to discuss the consequences of the Wellington students' actions.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
