I was pretty excited to read this book — it just showed up near me at my house one day (Kathy had ordered it on the recommendation of her dad). It’s a non-fiction account of a 25 year old Stanford grad posing for a whole year as a high school senior in Southern California. It’s a fine book, but I think the idea is a little better than the execution (sort of like “Heroes” on NBC). Lots of party drugs, steroids & hooking up. Not quite like my own high school experience, but close enough to what I imagine it’s like today. Punch line seems to be that high school’s tough & full of drama, educators are winging it a little bit in an environment of too-much-influence by school districts and politicians, and lots of things happen for lots of random reasons.
