Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld

For more grown-up takes on boarding school fiction, try these…

St. Clare’s by Enid Blyton for a book series that will make you want to run away and join the O’ Sullivan twins at boarding school

Skippy Dies by Paul Murray for a hilarious, rambunctious story about the death of a young student at a Catholic boarding school in Dublin

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro for a beautifully rendered book that will make you think about life, mortality, and what it means to be human

The Secret History by Donna Tartt for a classic, devastatingly powerful campus novel that will stay with you for a very long time
