One admission can change your life...forever.
When ambitious grad student Kate Pearson’s handsome French “almost fiancé” ditches her, she definitely does not roll with the punches, despite the best efforts of family and friends. It seems that nothing will get Kate out of pajamas and back into the world.
Miraculously, one cringe-worthy job interview leads to a position in the admissions department at the revered Hudson Day School. Kate’s instantly thrown into a highly competitive and occasionally absurd culture, where she interviews all types of children: suitable, wildly unsuitable, charming, loathsome, ingratiating, or spoiled beyond all measure. And then there are the Park Avenue parents who refuse to take no for an answer.
As Kate begins to learn there’s no room for self-pity or nonsense during the height of admissions season or life itself, her sister and friends find themselves keeping secrets, dropping bombshells, and arguing with each other about how to keep Kate on her feet. Meanwhile, Kate seems to be doing very nicely, thank you, and is even beginning to find out that her broken heart is very much on the mend. Welcome to the world of Small Admissions.
Small Admissions was a breath of fresh air. I have to admit I would usually grab a suspense/mystery off my shelf before I consider a Chick Lit book. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this book. When I read the introduction, I knew I was in for a ride. We are all aware how hard it is to deal with a break-up especially when it’s fresh.
Kate is dumped by her boyfriend and feels as though her life is coming to an end. Frustrated with her lack of zeal for life, Kate’s sister gets her a job in the Admissions office of at Hudson Day School. I won’t even spoil what went down in the interview. I guess that didn’t matter because Kate ended up with the job. That’s when she is introduced to a new array of characters that gives her a new zest for life.
This book was witty, full of humor, and well-written. There was more than a few laugh out loud moments for me. I can’t wait to read more from Author Amy Poeppel.
If you are looking for a book that will keep you smiling, then I recommend this fun read.
