Flora Goldwasser has traded her prep school for an alternative hippie boarding school because of a boy she expects to be there. Only that boy never shows. Narrator Brittany Pressley captures the one-note quality of first love and eventual disappointment that are conveyed in desperate letters from Flora to her sister. Pressley goes from fast paced and confident in tone as the boho-garbed Flora revels in her uniqueness to a more subdued and questioning lilt as she settles into her new school, where tunics and jeans are the norm. As Flora tells her story in letters, emails, and journal entries, Pressley portrays her consistently. She also does well with the airy delivery of a hippie teacher, the clipped aristocratic tones of Flora's mother, and the Valley Girl intonations of Flora's friends back home.
