Ivy League Stripper, by Heidi Mattson. We couldn't quite decide whether to put this one in the "paying for college" category or in "college life" - so it ended up here. Mattson, a high school valedictorian, chronicles the true story of how she paid for her Brown University education in an occupation that really, er, beat the pants off the usual work study jobs on campus. And they said that today's sky high tuitions made it impossible to work one's way through school! Non-fiction, paperback. Read More and/or Buy at Amazon.
Blue Blood : An Ivy League Mystery, by Pamela Thomas-Graham. Interested in the darker side of Harvard and Yale? An aspiring president of Yale is murdered, and Harvard professor Nikki Chase decides to investigate. She uncovers simmering racial tensions behind Yale's Gothic facade. This is the second in a series of Ivy League mysteries - the first, A Darker Shade of Crimson, was set at Harvard. Read More and/or Buy at Amazon.
