I received a copy of this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book is narrated by 14 year old Perry Gonzales, a scholarship student at a ritzy L.A. private school, who tutors fellow students. Along the way, she and her fellow students exhibit the seven deadly sins - lust, greed, envy, pride, sloth, wrath, and gluttony. The stories are kind of twisted little vignettes, much like Chris Priestley's Tales of Terror from the Tunnel's Mouth, Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror,and Tales of Terror from the Black Ship, but not quite as dark. Perry has written these tales as part of her college admission essay. She's fun, spunky and smart.
What I didn't like was the end. There are two letters to the college admissions officer, one from Perry and one from her mom.
I have absolutely no idea how these letters relate to the rest of the book.
Overall, the book is enjoyable, but I'd definitely skip the two letters at the end. They don't add anything to the book and actually detract from it, in my opinion.
