School of Fortunre by Amanda Brown and Janice Weber

School of Fortune is the classic tale of a spoiled Texas Heiress, but somehow this story is different. Pippa is getting married! When her mother catches wind of the proposal, she already has the phone and check book out. But when Pippa realizes her husband-to-be isn’t what she thought he was, she flees, getting herself disinherited and disowned. Pippa soon finds out that to get a piece of the family fortune is to get a degree. Soon a spoiled, riches to rags girl finds herself in wacky schools of all kind (including clown school), messed up hairdos, and a bad relationship with an elephant. She soon finds things are looking up for her, maybe even a little romance mixed in.

It was a ton of fun reading about this Texas heiress and her adventures. During the beginning I thought this book would be the tale of girl loses money, falls in love and then gets rich again. Wrong. School of Fortune was a fabulous whirlwind of schools, weddings, and drinks. I especially loved the ending that was like the classic tale with a twist. It was a truly fantastic story.

Content: It had some sexual content and some inappropriate language.
