Jane Mendelsohn recommends
Age of Consent (2020)
Amanda Brainerd
"In her striking debut, Amanda Brainerd conjures a cast of vibrant and troubled young characters who find themselves thrown into an adult world of money, treachery, and sexual politics. She captures the raw and painful tangle of female adolescence with emotional honesty and precision. Set in the 1980s, a tumultuous Age of Consent, and brimming with evocative detail, the story travels across the glittering and gritty landscapes of an elite boarding school and New York City, leading its vulnerable protagonists to the discovery that charmed lives often hide the most dangerous circumstances."
