One of PEOPLE magazine's Great Beach Reads: qThis novel about a striving, upscale California family is a bracing entertainment that zeroes in on the modern pressures put on teens--and their folks.q The Hawthorne family has it all. Great jobs, a beautiful house in one of the most affluent areas of northern California, and three charming kids with perfectly straight teeth.

A few ill-advised moves put the Hawthorne family on a heedless collision course that's equal parts achingly real and delightfully screwball. Sharp and topical, The Admissions shows that if you pull at a loose thread, even the sturdiest of lives start to unravel at the seams of high achievement.
