Megan Smith graduated from Yale with a prestigious journalism degree, but the only job she can find in New York City is with the gossip magazine Scoop. But Megan can't seem to get the hang of tabloid-style journalism, so her boss fires her.

Fortunately for Megan, her boss is friends with the owner of a cosmetics company who has been raising her twin granddaughters. Megan is offered the position of tutoring the seventeen-year-old fireballs, Sage and Rose Baker, in Palm Beach, Florida. In exchange for the girls receiving decent grades in school, a decent score on the SATs, and getting into Duke, Megan will receive a salary and at the end, her $75,000 college debt will be paid off. How hard could it be?

Well, Megan soon figures out that her task is near impossible. The girls are set to inherit millions of dollars and have no interest in college or studying. They find Megan unstylish, unsophisticated, and unworthy of their attention. Megan discovers that in order to accomplish her goal, she has to take some lessons of her own from Sage and Rose first.

How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls is an enjoyable book. Those who like Dean's A-List series, but want to move along to a book that has more adult themes, will devour this new offering. It's total fun to be immersed in the world of the rich and famous, and doing it through the eyes of normal Megan will make readers even more a part of the story.

At the beginning, Rose and Sage are merciless with Megan. They change their ways a little too quickly to be believable, but it doesn't really detract from the story. For a summer beach-type read, How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls fits the bill and then some. Parties with the rich, shopping, and romance on the beach make for a deliciously fluffy read.
