Book Review: An Off Year

Title: An Off Year
Author: Claire Zulkey
Genre: YA Literary Fiction
Rating: D

140-Character Summary: Cecily gets to college and promptly turns around. Spends a year at home, relating to friends and family, and trying to "figure things out".

First 140 Characters: "I raised the key and hesitated. Something wasn't right. I turned around. 'You know, actually, I think I'm just going to go back home..."

140-Character Review: Good writing (it's what kept me reading, I'm a sucker for wit). An anti-climactic climax and resolution. Nothing of note about protagonist.

Hogwarts Challenge Notes: Muggle Studies
This is a story of your sterotypical privileged high school graduate living a privileged "off year".
