Description

Nick and his friends have every advantage: expensive clothes, beautiful homes in Manhattan, peerless private-school educations. However, beneath the picture-perfect veneer lies a violent subculture that is gritty and dangerous, with binge drinking, heavy drug use, casual sex, vandalism, and gangs. Nick is in love with his best friend, Kris, and imagines a future with her outside the violence of their circle. When Kris's younger brother becomes a gang target, Nick is compelled to navigate the complex politics of the prep world, come to terms with his past gang experience, and put his own life at risk. Brutally realistic, Prep is a powerful, gripping exposé of America's most affluent youth.show more
