    By turns funny and smart, Kaplan's sophomore novel explores what happens when a student who, by everything she's done, should have no problem getting into any college but yet, discovers she didn't even get into the one that admits basically everyone. Was her transcript hacked? Misha en...

    3.5 stars A rare YA novel that approaches overachieving and the relentless hunt for the ?best school? in a moderately interesting way. (It really is amazing, although not surprising, how far some families would go to get into the so much coveted Ivy League schools.) But the char...

    *i received an early review copy from netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.* I went into this book knowing very little about it because I've literally heard no one talk about it, so i had zero expectations and I LOVED IT! I was interested in the story right a...

    Oh man I enjoyed that a lot. It was only partly what I expected; I kind of thought the MC would have more of an Enter Title Here vibe. But she didn't, and I loved her for it. (Not a criticism of ETH - I love that MC - but I feel like it's the obvious voice for an overachiever and it's ...

    Mischa Abramavicius is a straight-A student at a top private high school. The fact that she's there on scholarship has only motivated her to work her hardest, and it shows. She's consistently at the top of her class with good grades and impressive extracurricular achievements. When the...

    We Regret to Inform You is a piece of YA fiction that is a perfect hybrid of mystery and drama with a bit of romance. Misha takes some hits and questions herself, but ultimately, she escapes rock bottom with the help of her wit and determination. What starts as drama quickly turns to a...

    We Regret To Inform You was a book I was eagerly anticipating, because I had this feeling. You know, the one you have for a book you know you?ll enjoy. I?m really happy to say that, I was right. Sweet, fun, entertaining, We Regret To Inform You was, for me, a bingeable kind of r...

    The college admission process is brutal, but A.E. Kaplan?s WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU manages to make what is essentially a roll of the dice for even 4.0 students into a seriously funny and thought-provoking novel, perfect for teens and their anxiety-riddled parents. Mischa has the top ...

    Well this book was a lot of fun! It was super readable with a particularly delightful bunch of secondary characters. There were a couple of subplots that never got resolved--but on the whole I really enjoyed this one. Especially since I have a pet interest (read: hyperfixation) on coll...

    Grade: B+ An e-galley was provided by Random House via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: We Regret to Inform You has been kind of slipping under the radar. Not a lot of bloggers have talked about it, and it's not getting a lot of hype, lik...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars This was the moment, when it was all supposed to payoff. This was the reward for all her hard work, sleepless nights and her mother's financial sacrifice so that she could attend a top notch private high school. High SAT scores - check! Near perfect GPA (curse you ...

    Wow, this is a great book!! 1. College rejection EMAILS suck. I can relate. And an email feels even worse than a letter because it seems like they couldn?t even be bothered to buy a stamp. Ugh, it?s painful. 2. ?We Regret to Inform? pleasantly surprised me as somewhat of...

    Such a fun book! Very fast paced, fun romance, original story. I enjoyed the main character's growth arc from a bit of an obedient sheep to a free thinking, albeit confused, young adult. Would absolutely recommend. Can't wait to get this one into my library. ...

    So funny and engaging. Loved the characters and the relationships and the mystery. Highly recommend to anyone looking for some genuinely good YA. I?m about to go through the college admissions process, and I read this during the rich people college admissions scandal IRL, so it just ...

    DNF @62% This book was not really what I expected, and I don?t mean that I?m a good way. The beginning was okay, and then things got... weird. Actually, completely ridiculous, especially considering the subject matter. I get it, it?s a book, it?s not supposed be real, but a ...

    Spoilers, I guess. DNF. I was enjoying this novel about a young girl who goes to an expensive prep school in order to hopefully get into an Ivy League college. She reminded me a bit of Rory Gilmore from Gilmore Girls so I was interested to see what she would do when she is rejected ...

    During some points of this book, it was pretty cool, then, in other chapters, it was way to detailed and slightly boring. The plot was interesting...but it doesn't actually happen in real life, right? I think the them of this book is to never give up. When Mischa was little, they were ...

    Read my full review here! Some of the writing in this book is really bad. This next line comes directly from the book."It was good. It tasted maple-y. I like maple." That drove me insane and pulled away from the interesting plot. I felt like this book took a completely different ...
