In a life-altering move to escape the patronising psychobabble of her mother in Houston, Texas, fifteen-year-old Mimi Schulman breaks for the bohemian life of the West Village, New York City, to reconnect with her academic-turned-photographer father. From her very first day at the experimental Tillman School, Mimi learns that the seat of popularity rests with four enigmatic girls- Pia, Vivian, Lily and Jess - whose adolescent rampage through the affluent ranks of New York society knows no bounds. And so begins Mimi's mission to make it into 'The Coolies' by the end of the year...at any cost. A gossipy, scandalous, hilarious tale of friendship, identity and personal development.
