THE AU PAIRS
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult
This is Sex in the City lite, where everyone is a little more fabulous, flirtatious, snobby and deceitful than we areand it's quite all right with us.
Three diverse teen girls are hired to care for four rich children in the Hamptons for the summer. Eliza comes from a fallen-from-grace New York family, her famously wealthy father having "misdirected business funds"; Mara is from South Boston and leads a fairly normal life; and Jacqui, a South American beauty, is in the States to find her long-lost North American love.
Even though they're working, these girls find time to enjoy the privileged life of the Hamptons set. Their only problems? Eliza's jet-setting friends don't know she's broke, Jacqui's American boyfriend isn't who she thinks he is, and sweet Mara is no longer sure who she is in this glamorous life.
