Small Admissions by Amy Poeppel


Reviewed by Emily Terasa (Library Staff)

Kate Pearson is having a not so good year. Her handsome “almost” French fiancé just dumped her, she has no job, and she’s having trouble even leaving her apartment. Surprisingly after a very cringe-worthy job interview, Kate lands a job in the admissions department of Hudson Day School in New York. In dealing with the crazy parents, spoiled children, and the crazy application process, Kate starts to get back in the groove.

Small Admissions by Amy Poeppel is a charming novel that is extremely enjoyable for readers who want to see into the admissions process of fancy New York schools and follow a character that is going through a rough patch. The novel is written without chapters, and includes emails, letters, and chats. I enjoyed the different format because it gave the novel a unique twist. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and would definitely recommend it.
