This story drug on for too long. The main character, Porsha, made reading college admissions into sheer martyrdom. It did not captivate the reader at all compared to her other book, "You Should Have Known".
I was quite disappointed.
What did you love best about Admission?
The insight into college admissions -- it was an interesting hook for the book and gave a real sense for the pressures experienced by admissions officers. It's interesting to watch Portia Nathan grow from an "adult" who had cut off so much of her emotional life into a person who is ready for a more rewarding chapter, even though her actions may not be morally defensible. It's amazing how much a person can repress.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Admission?
Portia's decision at the end turned her into a "parent" who was more extreme than any of the parents she criticized.
What does Colleen Werthmann bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I wish the narrator would have correctly pronounced Bryn Mawr!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It was a tear jerker, for sure.
