Dusty Reads (6)

Dusty Reads is a weekly meme hosted by Xpresso Reads, featuring a book that has been sitting unread on a home shelf for some time.

Privileged by Zoey Dean (previously published as How To Teach Filthy Rich Girls)
PrivilegedRecent 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 might have said this about past dusty reads but this is on top of my list. I've been wanting some chick-lit.

Did anyone watch the show? I started when I knew it wasn't coming back. I'm bad luck to shows, so already cancelled works for me. I mostly started because it had Joanna Garcia, and for some reason I've always been drawn to Lucy Hale.
I liked it, I normally don't read books after they're put on screen but again chick-lit and most of the characters seemed pretty cute.
