Initiation

(2009)
A novel by

 
...I had no idea what could come of packing all those boys into one school building...how the competition would play out in relentless insults, the constant sorting out that went on every day, all day, to determine who was okay and who was worthless.

The halls of St. Stephen's reek of money, secrets, and desperation. Competition to be top dog at the Manhattan private school is fierce. But Mauricio Londoño - Latino, middle-class, and new to the brutality of prep school life - just wants to survive ninth grade.

Apartments the size of a city block...Vacations in the Hamptons... Being near all this extravagance, intellect, and beauty is a thrill. But navigating their sparkling world is another story. When two warring freshmen use the Web as a weapon, Mauricio gets burned in the online crossfire and learns firsthand how the privileged don't always play by the rules.

Susan Fine (Chicago, Illinois)was an English teacher and has worked in private schools, including an all-boys school in New York City.
