The unspooling of Toni Lee Wells’ Tiffany and Wild Turkey lifestyle begins with a trip to the Luckett County Jail drunk tank. An earlier wrist injury sidelined her pro tennis career, and now she’s trading her tennis whites for wild nights roaming the streets of Rose Hill, Georgia.
Her wealthy family finally gets fed up with her shenanigans. They cut off her monthly allowance but also make her a sweetheart deal: Get a job, keep it for a year, and you’ll receive an early inheritance. Act the fool or get fired, and you’ll lose it for good.
Toni Lee signs up for a fast-track Teacher Corps program. She hopes for an easy teaching gig, but what she gets is an assignment to Harriet Hall, a high school that churns out more thugs than scholars.
What’s a spoiled Southern belle to do when confronted with a bunch of street smart students who are determined to make her life as difficult as possible? Luckily, Carl, a handsome colleague, is willing to help her negotiate the rough teaching waters and keep her bed warm at night. But when Toni Lee gets involved with some dark dealings in the school system, she fears she might lose her new beau as well as her inheritance.

Review: When I pick up a book by Henery Press it is usually a quirky mystery. This time Girl Meets Class is chicklit and it really fits in with what I expect from Henery Press.

It is funny, Southern and just delightful.

Toni is a spoiled rich girl that has to get and keep a job or her inheritance goes by byes! This Paris Hilton, if you know what I'm saying. If that doesn't give you a few chuckles, I don't know what will. Mind you Toni is a bit hard to deal with at the beginning

How she ends up teaching special need kids in a low income part of town is stuff only chicklit books are made of. Again, more laughs here and even some growing on the part of Toni. When you toss in a new romantic relationship, thing are just about perfect.

I absolutely adored this book.
