Review - The Ivy by Lauren Kunze with Rina Onur

Description from goodreads:
"Congratulations! You have been admitted to the most prestigious university in the world. Now what are you going to do? Callie Andrews may not have money or connections or the right clothes, and she may have way too many complications in her love life, what with Gregory, the guy she loves to hate...Evan , the guy she'd love to forget...Clint, the guy she'd love to love...and Matt, the guy she really should love...all vying for her attention.But she has three fantastic roommates (best friends or her worst nightmare?) and a wholesome California-girl reputation (oops) and brains and beauty and big, big dreams.Will it be enough to help her survive freshman year at Harvard?"

This novel reminded me a lot of Gossip Girl with all  its drama. I was surprised at how much the characters in The Ivy focus on their social life versus their studies, but I suppose it would be boring to read about people studying. 

I didn't really connect with the main character, but I did have fun reading about her complicated love life and her attempts to fit with the elite crowd at Harvard. There is enough scandal and drama to keep readers interested, and the cliffhanger ending will ensure that people keep reading as the series continues. The Ivy is an entertaining read that is more appropriate for older teens due to some of the content. 

Thanks to Good Golly Miss Holly ARC Tours for lending me this book.

Sorry to hear you didn't connect with the MC- I love books in these private/elite school settings though, so I'll def. have to check this one out!
