Examples

  • If you're familiar with the kind of book that tells the tale of a young girl's transformation into womanhood (complete with high school crushes and parents that just don't get it), then a book like Amanda Boyden's Pretty Little Dirty ($14, Vintage, 2006) seems predicable and toothachy sweet: two best friends growing up in a small, posh Midwestern town with good grades and rebellious tendencies, summers spent lounging by a pool during day and experimenting with boys at night.
