Now in paperback! An uptight Brit and a hard-partying American swap lives in the smartest comedy of the season.

Take an administrative snafu, a bad breakup, and "The Hot-Tub Incident," and you've got two thoroughly unprepared sophomores on a semester abroad. For American party girl Tasha, an escape to Oxford may be a chance to ditch her fame as a tabloid temptress, but wading Uggs-deep in feminist theory is not her idea of a break. Meanwhile, the British half of the exchange, studious Emily, nurses an aching heart amid the bikinis and beer pong of U.C. Santa Barbara. With an anthropologist's eye for detail and a true ear for teen-speak, Abby McDonald crafts a funny, fast-paced, poignant look at survival, sisterhood, and the surprising ways we discover our true selves.

Wow. Second time i read this book and i still feel like it's just as great. I still don't get why she would cross the atlantic ocean because of a break up though. Great book to read if your into chick lits.
