The rise and fall of a 10th-grade social climber / Lauren Mechling and Laura Moser
- Too preoccupied with family problems to think much about her new life, Mimi's first hour at The Baldwin School in New York City, an institution where teachers offer psychoanalysis in lieu of grades and students hold cocktail parties in the bathroom between classes, leaves her spinning. Rubbing shoulders with the offspring of diplomats and celebrities, Mimi finds herself going from one bizarre situation to the next, at risk of losing her sense of self and hurting the people she has come to love. A coming-of-age story about friendship and betrayal, about brutal honesty and its consequences, The Rise and Fall of a 10th-Grade Social Climber is a novel with heart and a wicked sense of humor.
