The Education of Bet - Lauren Baratz-Logsted 1.5 stars

A girl disguises herself as a boy, in order to get precious education denied to her in 19th century, for reasons never really built upon or explored, and upon arrival does very little learning and instead falls for her roommate. She is ready to throw it all away (which is her choice), even though getting this education was her big goal. None of the characters appealed to me overmuch, Bet was not a convincing boy and anyone with a brain would easily have discovered her secret. The writing was somewhat ... overtly plain.
