How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls by Zoey Dean

Recent Yale graduate Megan Smith comes to Manhattan with big plans for a career in journalism and even bigger student loan debt: $75,000. When she flails at her trashy tabloid job, she's given an escape hatch: tutor seventeen-year-old identical twins Rose and Sage Baker--yes, the infamous Baker heiresses of Palm Beach, Florida, best known for their massive fortunes and their penchant for drunkenly flashing the paparazzi -- and get their SAT scores up enough to get into Duke.Impossible job -- yes. But if she succeeds, her student debts are history. Unfortunately for Megan, the Baker twins aren't about to curtail their busy social schedules for basic algebra. And they certainly aren't thrilled to have to sit down for a study session with dowdy Megan. Megan quickly discovers that if she's going to get her money, she'll have to learn her Pucci from her Prada. And if she can look the part, maybe, just maybe, she can teach the girls something along the way.

I really wasn’t impressed with this story. It was just too predictable the ending was a treat though. But you see I had to read this story before the TV show Privileged premiered or before I even watched an episode. And despite the story’s disappointment the show is appealing at least it will be for a while. I really don’t have much to say on this book. I know many people liked it but I just didn’t. Maybe the audio book would be released and I might give it another go and like it then…but I doubt it. It’s harsh I know but it is what it is.
