    3.5 stars A rare YA novel that approaches overachieving and the relentless hunt for the ?best school? in a moderately interesting way. (It really is amazing, although not surprising, how far some families would go to get into the so much coveted Ivy League schools.) But the char...

    Cute - intrigue surrounding college admissions. A promising senior at a private high school is rejected from every school she applies to and discovers that something strange happened to her transcript. No one is above suspicion! A nice balance of suspense, humor, family and romance. Ha...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars This was the moment, when it was all supposed to payoff. This was the reward for all her hard work, sleepless nights and her mother's financial sacrifice so that she could attend a top notch private high school. High SAT scores - check! Near perfect GPA (curse you ...

    We Regret to Inform You is a piece of YA fiction that is a perfect hybrid of mystery and drama with a bit of romance. Misha takes some hits and questions herself, but ultimately, she escapes rock bottom with the help of her wit and determination. What starts as drama quickly turns to a...

    Oh man I enjoyed that a lot. It was only partly what I expected; I kind of thought the MC would have more of an Enter Title Here vibe. But she didn't, and I loved her for it. (Not a criticism of ETH - I love that MC - but I feel like it's the obvious voice for an overachiever and it's ...

    Mischa Abramavicius is a straight-A student at a top private high school. The fact that she's there on scholarship has only motivated her to work her hardest, and it shows. She's consistently at the top of her class with good grades and impressive extracurricular achievements. When the...

    Read my full review here! Some of the writing in this book is really bad. This next line comes directly from the book."It was good. It tasted maple-y. I like maple." That drove me insane and pulled away from the interesting plot. I felt like this book took a completely different ...

    We Regret To Inform You was a book I was eagerly anticipating, because I had this feeling. You know, the one you have for a book you know you?ll enjoy. I?m really happy to say that, I was right. Sweet, fun, entertaining, We Regret To Inform You was, for me, a bingeable kind of r...

    E ARC from Netgalley Mischa attends a prestigious private school near D.C., at great personal cost to her single mother. Mischa has done everything she is supposed to do, keeping up her grades, doing well on tests, and getting good letters of recommendation from her teachers. When c...

    Spoilers, I guess. DNF. I was enjoying this novel about a young girl who goes to an expensive prep school in order to hopefully get into an Ivy League college. She reminded me a bit of Rory Gilmore from Gilmore Girls so I was interested to see what she would do when she is rejected ...

    The college admission process is brutal, but A.E. Kaplan?s WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU manages to make what is essentially a roll of the dice for even 4.0 students into a seriously funny and thought-provoking novel, perfect for teens and their anxiety-riddled parents. Mischa has the top ...

    Grade: B+ An e-galley was provided by Random House via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: We Regret to Inform You has been kind of slipping under the radar. Not a lot of bloggers have talked about it, and it's not getting a lot of hype, lik...

    Wow, this is a great book!! 1. College rejection EMAILS suck. I can relate. And an email feels even worse than a letter because it seems like they couldn?t even be bothered to buy a stamp. Ugh, it?s painful. 2. ?We Regret to Inform? pleasantly surprised me as somewhat of...

    *i received an early review copy from netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.* I went into this book knowing very little about it because I've literally heard no one talk about it, so i had zero expectations and I LOVED IT! I was interested in the story right a...

    *3.5 An enjoyable highly unrealistic book. Requires a high suspension of disbelief but was a fun a ride. Full review to come. ...

    I loved it! Witty and a great mystery :) ...

    **I received this as an egalley from the publisher through Edelweiss in return for an honest review.** Okay, so I honestly didn't think I was going to be in the mood to read this when I started it, but from the first chapter onward I was hooked. The writing was fast, smooth and comp...

    This book is incredibly smart and shockingly witty. Mischa's narrative is funny and quick. If you loved the quick repartee of Gilmore Girls, you'll love this book. It moves fast and Mischa is a very worthy narrative. The mystery element is also really entertaining. It's basically a who...

    This was a great book. And it would make a great movie. And I've already written the script. The first win for this book is the spoofing of classic tropes (though I'm not sure if that was the intention or not). Mainly the classic super-cool-team-of-dudes-and-one-female-love-interest...

    I received a copy of this book thanks to Netgalley and Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. "I was low enough now to see cars on the highway, with little tiny people inside them, driving to and fro, like little ants m...

    I do not envy today's high schoolers and the immense pressure upon them to compete for spots in all types of college. I went through that to get into nursing school and it was intense. I cannot imagine having to fill my platter in high school with tons of extracurriculars that I don't ...

    Synopsis: Mischa Abramavicius works harder than anyone at her prestigious prep school. While her peers drive BMWs and are descendants of historically wealthy families of power, she is at Blanchard Prep on scholarship. Finally, the day comes for her college acceptance letters to beg...

    I received a fee ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review through Netgalley. Mischa is a high school senior who lives every overachievers worst nightmare - she finds out that she did not get into any colleges. As an educator who works with high schoolers and as a person who wa...

    Mischa Abramavicious is the perfect student: she has all the grades it needs to get into the best colleges, her list of extracurricular activities is impressive and her single-parent mom will be proud of her. But on Admission Day, she only gets rejections. None of the schools has admit...

    Although Mischa Abramovicius attends a highly-competitive private high school, there is little doubt that she's on her way to one of the top universities in the country. After all, this smart and involved senior has the grades, the SAT scores, the extracurricular activities, and even t...

    We Regret To Inform You was a book I was eagerly anticipating, because I had this feeling. You know, the one you have for a book you know you?ll enjoy. I?m really happy to say that, I was right. Sweet, fun, entertaining, We Regret To Inform You was, for me, a bingeable kind of r...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars This was the moment, when it was all supposed to payoff. This was the reward for all her hard work, sleepless nights and her mother's financial sacrifice so that she could attend a top notch private high school. High SAT scores - check! Near perfect GPA (curse you ...

    We Regret to Inform You is a piece of YA fiction that is a perfect hybrid of mystery and drama with a bit of romance. Misha takes some hits and questions herself, but ultimately, she escapes rock bottom with the help of her wit and determination. What starts as drama quickly turns to a...

    The college admission process is brutal, but A.E. Kaplan?s WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU manages to make what is essentially a roll of the dice for even 4.0 students into a seriously funny and thought-provoking novel, perfect for teens and their anxiety-riddled parents. Mischa has the top ...

    This book is incredibly smart and shockingly witty. Mischa's narrative is funny and quick. If you loved the quick repartee of Gilmore Girls, you'll love this book. It moves fast and Mischa is a very worthy narrative. The mystery element is also really entertaining. It's basically a who...

    This was a great book. And it would make a great movie. And I've already written the script. The first win for this book is the spoofing of classic tropes (though I'm not sure if that was the intention or not). Mainly the classic super-cool-team-of-dudes-and-one-female-love-interest...

    I do not envy today's high schoolers and the immense pressure upon them to compete for spots in all types of college. I went through that to get into nursing school and it was intense. I cannot imagine having to fill my platter in high school with tons of extracurriculars that I don't ...

    3.5 stars A rare YA novel that approaches overachieving and the relentless hunt for the ?best school? in a moderately interesting way. (It really is amazing, although not surprising, how far some families would go to get into the so much coveted Ivy League schools.) But the char...

    Cute - intrigue surrounding college admissions. A promising senior at a private high school is rejected from every school she applies to and discovers that something strange happened to her transcript. No one is above suspicion! A nice balance of suspense, humor, family and romance. Ha...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars This was the moment, when it was all supposed to payoff. This was the reward for all her hard work, sleepless nights and her mother's financial sacrifice so that she could attend a top notch private high school. High SAT scores - check! Near perfect GPA (curse you ...

    We Regret to Inform You is a piece of YA fiction that is a perfect hybrid of mystery and drama with a bit of romance. Misha takes some hits and questions herself, but ultimately, she escapes rock bottom with the help of her wit and determination. What starts as drama quickly turns to a...

    Oh man I enjoyed that a lot. It was only partly what I expected; I kind of thought the MC would have more of an Enter Title Here vibe. But she didn't, and I loved her for it. (Not a criticism of ETH - I love that MC - but I feel like it's the obvious voice for an overachiever and it's ...

    Mischa Abramavicius is a straight-A student at a top private high school. The fact that she's there on scholarship has only motivated her to work her hardest, and it shows. She's consistently at the top of her class with good grades and impressive extracurricular achievements. When the...

    Read my full review here! Some of the writing in this book is really bad. This next line comes directly from the book."It was good. It tasted maple-y. I like maple." That drove me insane and pulled away from the interesting plot. I felt like this book took a completely different ...

    We Regret To Inform You was a book I was eagerly anticipating, because I had this feeling. You know, the one you have for a book you know you?ll enjoy. I?m really happy to say that, I was right. Sweet, fun, entertaining, We Regret To Inform You was, for me, a bingeable kind of r...

    Spoilers, I guess. DNF. I was enjoying this novel about a young girl who goes to an expensive prep school in order to hopefully get into an Ivy League college. She reminded me a bit of Rory Gilmore from Gilmore Girls so I was interested to see what she would do when she is rejected ...

    The college admission process is brutal, but A.E. Kaplan?s WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU manages to make what is essentially a roll of the dice for even 4.0 students into a seriously funny and thought-provoking novel, perfect for teens and their anxiety-riddled parents. Mischa has the top ...

    Grade: B+ An e-galley was provided by Random House via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: We Regret to Inform You has been kind of slipping under the radar. Not a lot of bloggers have talked about it, and it's not getting a lot of hype, lik...

    Wow, this is a great book!! 1. College rejection EMAILS suck. I can relate. And an email feels even worse than a letter because it seems like they couldn?t even be bothered to buy a stamp. Ugh, it?s painful. 2. ?We Regret to Inform? pleasantly surprised me as somewhat of...

    This book is incredibly smart and shockingly witty. Mischa's narrative is funny and quick. If you loved the quick repartee of Gilmore Girls, you'll love this book. It moves fast and Mischa is a very worthy narrative. The mystery element is also really entertaining. It's basically a who...

    This was a great book. And it would make a great movie. And I've already written the script. The first win for this book is the spoofing of classic tropes (though I'm not sure if that was the intention or not). Mainly the classic super-cool-team-of-dudes-and-one-female-love-interest...

    The college admission process is brutal, but A.E. Kaplan?s WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU manages to make what is essentially a roll of the dice for even 4.0 students into a seriously funny and thought-provoking novel, perfect for teens and their anxiety-riddled parents. Mischa has the top ...

    Wow, this is a great book!! 1. College rejection EMAILS suck. I can relate. And an email feels even worse than a letter because it seems like they couldn?t even be bothered to buy a stamp. Ugh, it?s painful. 2. ?We Regret to Inform? pleasantly surprised me as somewhat of...

    *i received an early review copy from netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.* I went into this book knowing very little about it because I've literally heard no one talk about it, so i had zero expectations and I LOVED IT! I was interested in the story right a...

    **I received this as an egalley from the publisher through Edelweiss in return for an honest review.** Okay, so I honestly didn't think I was going to be in the mood to read this when I started it, but from the first chapter onward I was hooked. The writing was fast, smooth and comp...

    This book is incredibly smart and shockingly witty. Mischa's narrative is funny and quick. If you loved the quick repartee of Gilmore Girls, you'll love this book. It moves fast and Mischa is a very worthy narrative. The mystery element is also really entertaining. It's basically a who...

    This was a great book. And it would make a great movie. And I've already written the script. The first win for this book is the spoofing of classic tropes (though I'm not sure if that was the intention or not). Mainly the classic super-cool-team-of-dudes-and-one-female-love-interest...

    I do not envy today's high schoolers and the immense pressure upon them to compete for spots in all types of college. I went through that to get into nursing school and it was intense. I cannot imagine having to fill my platter in high school with tons of extracurriculars that I don't ...

    I received a fee ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review through Netgalley. Mischa is a high school senior who lives every overachievers worst nightmare - she finds out that she did not get into any colleges. As an educator who works with high schoolers and as a person who wa...

    Mischa Abramavicious is the perfect student: she has all the grades it needs to get into the best colleges, her list of extracurricular activities is impressive and her single-parent mom will be proud of her. But on Admission Day, she only gets rejections. None of the schools has admit...

    Warning: There may be Spoilers Your mom works hard and sacrifices to send you to a private school so that you can get into a good college. You work hard in school to get good grades, join clubs to pad your extracurriculars, and basically do everything you're asked to do--yet you get...

    We Regret to Inform by Ariel Kaplan is a book about friendship and learning to find yourself. I would recommend this book to people who are struggling in high school and preparing to go into college. It is easy to relate your high school experience to this book, and understand the main...

    This book was...okay. It was meh. It existed. Mischa? Naive. Nate? Cute and bisexual, at least that's what we've been told. Caroline? Nonexistent. Jim? Flat. Emily? Shira? Bebe? Interchangeable. Let's face facts, guys: the plot carried this story. The characters were so bland! Mischa h...

    3.5 stars A rare YA novel that approaches overachieving and the relentless hunt for the ?best school? in a moderately interesting way. (It really is amazing, although not surprising, how far some families would go to get into the so much coveted Ivy League schools.) But the char...

    Cute - intrigue surrounding college admissions. A promising senior at a private high school is rejected from every school she applies to and discovers that something strange happened to her transcript. No one is above suspicion! A nice balance of suspense, humor, family and romance. Ha...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars This was the moment, when it was all supposed to payoff. This was the reward for all her hard work, sleepless nights and her mother's financial sacrifice so that she could attend a top notch private high school. High SAT scores - check! Near perfect GPA (curse you ...

    We Regret to Inform You is a piece of YA fiction that is a perfect hybrid of mystery and drama with a bit of romance. Misha takes some hits and questions herself, but ultimately, she escapes rock bottom with the help of her wit and determination. What starts as drama quickly turns to a...

    Oh man I enjoyed that a lot. It was only partly what I expected; I kind of thought the MC would have more of an Enter Title Here vibe. But she didn't, and I loved her for it. (Not a criticism of ETH - I love that MC - but I feel like it's the obvious voice for an overachiever and it's ...

    Read my full review here! Some of the writing in this book is really bad. This next line comes directly from the book."It was good. It tasted maple-y. I like maple." That drove me insane and pulled away from the interesting plot. I felt like this book took a completely different ...

    We Regret To Inform You was a book I was eagerly anticipating, because I had this feeling. You know, the one you have for a book you know you?ll enjoy. I?m really happy to say that, I was right. Sweet, fun, entertaining, We Regret To Inform You was, for me, a bingeable kind of r...
