From the back:
Summer in the city? Way overrated. Everybody who's anybody in New York City summers in the Hampton's. Mara, Eliza and Jacqui all want a piece of the action, all for different reasons.
So the girls answer a classified ad to be become au pairs. How bad can it be, watching a couple of kids on the beach all day? They've got the swank address, the sweet ride, and an all-aces pass to the hottest social scene on the East Coast. Its shaping up to be the summer of their lives.
This was a fantastic story. I loved how it managed to grasp every angle of being a teen. It showed a need to fit in, the need for love and finding your true self. As for all the catty girl drama.... just an added bonus.
