Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn

type
  • Book
genre

An unknown female narrator is privy to 15-year-old Gideon’s every thought as he transfers to a snooty prep school.

Source of Angst
Gideon’s arrogant roommates goad him into a racy bet: lose his virginity by Halloween.

Fashion Statement
”[Midvale Academy girls] are beautiful. They are like sirens on rocks, except they are on the grass, fully clothed, with expensive handbags.”

Lowdown
The Less Than Zero-meets-J. Crew catalog characters are amusing, but the narrative device is distracting.
