Good Light Read
Hysterical for Harvard, by M. A. Wentworth, is an easy, enjoyable book to read. Jack, an on-again-off-again actor is working as a waiter in Los Angeles – just what struggling actors do. A former friend from Harvard appears with an offer he tries but can’t refuse. It’s a lucrative tutoring job for a high school over-achiever from a wealthy Korean family. April, the young woman, is more than Jake can deal with but she becomes a challenge. Eventually, he finds there’s much more to this family than meet the idea. Jake’s funny and comes up with some ingenious ways of dealing with an impossible young woman and her impossible family. Parts of the story are a bit on the farfetched side but a good read nonetheless.
