    DescriptionMeet Penelope O'Shaughnessy, Harvard freshman. Armed with her Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights poster and party conversation modelled on the repartee of Noel Coward, Penelope is ready to take her place on campus. But where are the kindred spirits who will share her passion for Morse code and Tetris? Penelope's roommates, over-achieving Emma and the sullen Lan, seem to have already got to grips with university life, and she is finding it hard to work out if the dashing but elusive Gustav matches up to her hero, Hercule Poirot. Penelope follows our heroine's progress through her first year among America's elite, as she navigates the mysteries of life, love, inappropriate tutors, marionette operation and how to kiss on both cheeks and avoid disaster.

    Review quote
    Full of wit, insight and wonderful characters ... Penelope sets the bar staggeringly high for 2013. If I read a more enjoyable book this year, I'll be amazed Daily Mail * Refreshing, pleasantly absurd, highly addictive. Penelope would describe herself as awkward and forgettable. Awkward: yes. Forgettable: absolutely not -- Kaui Hemmings, author of The Descendants A witty coming-of-age debut Grazia
