The Ivy by Lauren Kunze

Summary: Freshman year at Harvard--glamorous parties, blossoming friendships, steamy romances, and scandalous secrets. Skip the campus tour and get right to the good stuff: classes are for scoping guys (and their Facebook profiles), not taking notes. The library is for study dates (the medieval history stacks get a lot of action), not studying. And success is a 4.0 GPA... plus getting into the most exclusive parties. How will Callie--a California girl with brains, beauty, and big dreams--and her three roommates survive?

Get admitted to The Ivy, the first book in a provocative new series about the world of the Ivy League.

My Thoughts: Its hard to describe The Ivy! Yes, I went to college but I didn't stay in a dorm, or even have roommates. We are introduced to Callie who is a freshmen in college. She is new to all this and is trying her best to fit in. She comes from California and a lot of people peg her as a dumb blonde, but she is far from it. We are than introduced to all the girls who live with her and the guys across the hall. Some of the guys I liked while others I disliked but began to grow on me. I liked the Ivy a lot, it was full of drama, romance, and all around fun. I was also very happy with who Callie ended up with. I heard there are going to be a few more books in the series. This is just the beginning of Callie's college experience.

The only bad thing I can say, and its not even that bad, is that parts of the writing felt choppy. Sometimes I would have to go back and check to see if something happened, did I miss that or were we just supposed to "guess" it happened. There were a few confusing parts but other than that The Ivy was very drama-filled which I loved!

Overall: Liked it a lot! Can't wait to read more about the characters.

Cover: Its plain yet really cool. The red is very attractive.

What I'd Give It:
