Penelope by Rebecca Harrington

Penelope is a Harvard freshman who is not adept at making friends. This book follows her during her first year at school and all of her social and academic mishaps.

This book was quite bad. Neither Penelope nor her friends had personalities. They weren't likeable at all. And, apparently, at Harvard no one uses contractions when they speak. Hum, maybe using contractions is a University of California thing because I use contractions A LOT (see the following sentence)! Furthermore, Penelope doesn't change at all during the book, so I didn't really see the point of the whole story. I finished the book, but I was ho-hum throughout. Please don't waste your time with this book. Thanks!
